Not So ‘Peaky’ Peak District!

It's fair to say that everytime we meet UK climbers, one of the first questions is have we climbed in the peaks? After seven years of owning the guidebook and ten years of climbing we have finally climbed in the Peak District! The first stop was the Roaches, simply because I read the name in...

One way to make an entrance!

Our second day in Brecon started comfortably, having a slow breakfast and getting ready in our own time. Today's cave was Pant Mawr which meant on leaving the hut, we had to walk for over an hour, over the hills being the hut to each the cave opening. Tim's navigating brought us directly to the...

Underground in Brecon

We left Brighton on Friday night with our bearings set for the mendips. On arrival we hunkered down as forty mile an hour winds literally rocked us to sleep. In the morning we met Tim and as a three set off for South Wales. It's been years since I was in the Brecons, and as... Continue Reading →

We headed north after Las Fallas, in the general direction of... Continue Reading →

All I could find in the form of topo’s was higher graded routes, most of which were out of my grades, however I still thought a... Continue Reading →

Cesares Via Ferrata

This is a tiny post more for information rather than telling a story of what I have done, although I'm sure there will be a little in there! We parked at the Aire that is located at the top of the town (36.445959, -5.278203), where we camped, it is quite comfortable and has water, waste and... Continue Reading →

A walk around El Tocal

Whilst we were travelling towards El Chorro, I placed a thread on the UKC forum asking wether there was any descent places to go walking or scrambling near El Chorro, as I fancied the option if there was a chance between climbs. As luck would have it I chose an Aire in a town called... Continue Reading →
