Skymasters champion

Won the first Skymasters challenge at the outdoor show in Birmingham. Amazing climbing through 30+ metres of roof and Kalymnos style tufas! Arrived on Saturday with no expectations and no pressure found myself in first place for Sundays final!

Then there was some pressure! Being the last out i knew that people had got close to the end but no one had topped it! My usual route tactic of go go go seemed the order of the day and get into the hands off rest in the tufas to try and recover before a sprint to the end! i have never been so pumped in my life and not fallen off! Pure adrenaline pulled me up the last moves feeling the crowd willing me to the top, i latched the finishing jug and knew i had won, amazing! the last competitor out and the only one to the top. oh and a bit richer to boot!

Check out my pumped forearms!

long time no writing!

Not a lot been going on recently, just a bit of work and some training. Won the last round of the works comp, which i won overall so some nice piece of berghaus gear heading my way!

Made some good progress on a project in Yorkshire very frustrating being dragged around on the end of a shunt, so be good to get on it on a top rope!

Off to the outdoors show in Birmingham this weekend to compete in the Skymasters Challenge which should be a good laugh, 30m of horizontal roof madness, check it out
