The last few months have seen some sporadic climbing, but a lot of work on UKClimbing.com, and after buying a new apartment in need of full renovations, even more DIY.
But training has begun for the next big mission – this time I am headed to Patagonia.
The Patagonia season is December/January, and this is exactly when I am heading out there with my eyes set on Cerro Torre.
In preparation for this trip I have reentered the world of running, and last week I ran my first real race for over a decade. A 30km race (Tour des Fiz) , with over 2500m of ascent, did leave my little legs a bit tired, but a few more of these, coupled with some big alpine north faces in the late autumn, should see my mountain fitness level quite high by the time December comes.
Once again I am heading in to the mountains with Rob Greenwood, and I must say I have never in my life been so excited about a climbing trip.
Bring on Patagonia! Woo!
