Last weekend I had a lovely day in the forest with Ug and Maddie, picking wild strawberries and raspberries, being hung over, playing a guitar and finding and cleaning and climbing a cool roof crack/chimney thing. The beast went down to all three of us in one direction or another, with a variety of methods used. I favoured the good old ‘invert’ and seemed to really like using my own ankles as handholds. Ug just punched its face in and Maddie put in a fine performance of determination and came away unscathed and with the crack in the bag.
Other more normal, documented problems were also climbed, and all that after a 4am finish due to ‘Chamonix Nights’ the previous evening…[vimeo http://vimeo.com/27197738 w=600&h=338]
