Wreckers Slab

Here’s an old write up from the old website – an ascent of wreckers slab back in 2009. Exploring the North Devon Coast for upcoming courses 10.07.2009 On yet another “sun and showers” day during July we decided to take a trip up to north Devon and explore some of the coast line in preparation for some upcoming courses during August. We started by walking on the Coastal path north of Bude to “Cornakey Cliff” which is home to one of the north coasts classic routes, “Wreckers Slab.” This route, full of history was an impressive achievement for the...

Dartmoor Classic Climbs

Dartmoor Classic Climbs course – August 2010 Dewerstone, Hound Tor and Hay Tor over the course of two days. A rainy start to our day at the dewerstone didn’t inspire confidence for our planned routes but we started off on the classic “route B” to warm up which was fine in the wet.

Baggy Point sea cliff climbing

Baggy Point sea cliff climbing 12.9.2010 Baggy point is a collection of sea cliffs on the north devon coast near barnstable.

The bottom part of many of the routes were wet from the spray so we tried to stay high and avoid a dunking. Three cliffs and eight climbs later it...

It's that time of year.... the summer isn't far away and it's worth thinking about summer alpine plans early. Booking guides and huts are worth doing in advance! And that isn't a marketing ploy by the way :)
This year we have a few trips scheduled, including Mont Blanc (3 trips), Matterhorn and some lesser known peaks like the Domes du Miage.
Have a browse of the scheduled trips page - and give us a bell if you'd like to arrange a trip on different dates, we have a list of people who'd like to share some guided climbing adventures.

Another day of laps in the trees. Low angled slopes avoiding the avi hazard and trying to keep out of the wind. Pretty wild weather at the moment.
