Hi There Gezza's,
Just got back from a team training meet in Scotland up at Ratho wall, where the french team trained with us for 5 days!! Which was inspiring!!!. The main goal was to compete in the Open Youth Competition and then hopefully get selected for the World Cup Lead in september. After both qual routes which went well, I set up to beast the final route but had an epic on it!, I clipped wrong draw's half way up which ment I had to climb back down and then un-clip them hehehe fun times but after about 4 minutes my clips were right and then only had enough left in the tank to do 5ish more moves which was gay!! but overall I finished 3rd place behind some french beasts but managed to beat one of them which was cool shit!!!.

On final route ;) I am training hard atm for the next EYS in Vienna in 13 days!!! and also for the World's in about 4/5 weeks time. really phsyced to climb some hard shit!

Turkey dip!

Been a good few days this week. Checked out a couple of new places nearby. One being turkey dip and the other long tor quarry. Was very impressed with both crags for sure. Dont really understand why people dont go to these places. Anyways highlights were The Boldest at Long tor, which is a brilliant 3 star 7c and Step on it at Turkey dip being a wicked 7c+ crackline. Ed got Jon C new line at around 8a+. Have also continued the seige down at the cornice in cheee dale, ticking Roof warrior 8a and K3 8a+ and Ed did R'n'p and K3. The crag is looking more awesome every time we go down there with more routes being cleaned up by keen locals. Nice one!! Also saw a great ascent of monumental armblaster by Jon! A fantastic effort and looks hard. Off down south again next week to check out Swanage and Lulworth for some sunny bolt clipping and dws. PSYCHED!!!!!
Oh and Ed took a ride in a Ferrari!

Spent a good few days down at Chee Dale (the cornice) and managed to do my hardest Flash in the Peak which was 'The Roof Warrior (8a) an amazing route on the biggest holds ever!!!!!!. Then finished off the day by ticking 'Esmerelda (7c+) abit further up which is a small fun route. On Friday I ticked Nemesis (8a+) which I almost got second try but fell after the slopey jug after the hard bit but Caff then gave me some good beta and did it 3rd go, which was great!!.

Peace Out
