Bouldering in the cold – Dartmoor

After last weeks bouldering at Bonehill and Hound tor in my T-shirt it was a bit of a rude awakening to find myself in full winter thermals trying to find routes that were out of the wind at Tunhill on Friday. Duvet Jackets and thermos flasks were the order of the day. Joe and I had a good time though, and we did some good warm up problems in the big boots to keep the feet warm, which was pretty good practice for Scotland this coming week. We’d had enough after a couple of hours so headed back to...

Winter bouldering on Dartmoor – Bonehill Rocks

One of the best things about climbing in the south-west is the fact that you can climb year-round. The last few days of high pressue weather have been great, lot’s of bouldering in the sunshine.

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.
