As it says in the title. Well psyched to be on the cover of Greg Chapman’s awesome looking new bouldering guide to St Bees in the Lake District.
Here’s a screen shot:

Greg has done an ace job of it and the guide looks great.
St Bees is somewhere I used to frequent many years ago – 11 years ago to be exact – wow I feel old – and is a really special bouldering spot on the west coast of Cumbria. This was my only visit in recent years – a flying visit just for a quick spot of routes and bouldering, and it was as amazing as I remember. I had been planning to go for the last year or so, as a friend from overseas really fancied it, but we never got there in the end, which was a real shame, as it would have been a great place to show a visitor.
Greg dropped me an email asking if he could use the shot as he had (I guess) seen it on this very blog here: http://jackgeldard.com/2010/06/24/photos-the-last-few-weeks-climbing/ and little did I know it was going to be on the cover. I shall print it out, laminate it and then if I ever have Grand-kids, I’ll make sure I show it to them on an annoyingly regular basis.
That’s it – over and out!
