Sometimes you’ve just got to say no to work and go on an adventure!

I’d never heard of Chulilla but Fay assured me it was the place to be. It turns out she was right!

It’s been a great year!

That might be an odd thing to say as it’s only November, but I’ve finished work for the year and have headed to Spain until Christmas time for some hopefully sunny sport climbing.

I’ve been really lucky this year to have done loads of great work, with loads of great people! Lots of teaching lead rock climbing, loads of teaching on Single Pitch Award courses and more Mountain Leader courses than ever before.

Thanks to all those that have been out with me this year, hopefully I’ll see you all for more courses or out and about using your new skills!

As always, check out the Facebook page and Instagram to see what we’re up to.

Whilst I dislike having to turn the bedroom light on in the mornings when I wake up, it’s quite exciting to notice a little chill in the air!

Although winter is a little way off yet, it’s hard not to start thinking of winter climbing and mountaineering. We are running a few courses up in Scotland this winter and I hope to get lots of personal stuff done too.
