Stanage Edge Bouldering

Today Simon and Liam took me and Oscar bouldering in Stanage. This was a short drive out of Sheffield and a muddy walk up to the rocks. The shoes I had to choose from for the walk up were crocs or heelies. I chose the crocs because I thought the wheel would get clogged up with mud. The first rock we went to was an easy slab called the bull or something like that. We laid our mats out and…

First place Yesterday I got up and went to Boulders for the Welsh Climbing Championships. The car park was almost full when we got there, but we managed to find a space around the back. It was pouring with rain and there was a massive queue to get into Boulders but I passed the queue and found out it was only for registration so I decided to register later. We went into Pebbles, the Boulders play area, to dump our…

On Friday I went to Boulders for a training session with my coach Simon. We had a really good session on the finger boards. I got two huge blisters on my fingers though. After the session Joby Boulders shop manager gave me some Boulders jumpers, a chalk bag and a SNAP bouldering mat as they are now sponsoring me!  Here are some pictures of my new kit:
