Not a climbing post. Got the van down to Europe for the first time which has been fun and scary.
A few days in bruges and lille before a dash down to font which was wet but great for a walk.
Been great to spend time with the crazy lady before we get back to reality. I have 7 weeks to train for font and after all the bad (good) food and beer this week I need to get on it. And we both need to get on with looking good for the wedding. And planning it of course, 5 months to go.
Well sort of. The finger is still knackered and not meant to be climbing but I couldn’t take horizontal life any more. Gentle 6a+ for now!
In the meantime I did the Yorkshire three peaks, Derwent valley, planned a van conversion, moved jobs to Leeds so I’m closer to climbing on a night and my other half is moving in so doing a lot of DIY (just how many clothes can one woman have… 3 wardrobes later)
Nat, my partner, isn’t a climber but is a free spirit who is more than happy to sit in the outdoors sketching while I boulder.
Not much climbing here but lots of positives.
No E11's, no Yosemite, no hair-rasing solos, just the beautiful art from an average climber
