We’re in the Coed Y Brenin Park for some family mountain biking, running, autumning, and stuff. Jack wants to have a crack at the blue route. Will he survive?
Annabel is still very keen to do more mountain biking so she wants to go to Coed Y Brenin forest park in north Wales to have another go. Me too! She’s going to need a bigger bike though, and she’s not riding enough for me to buy a new one. What to do?
Kim wants caves.
Kim likes climbing. Why does Kim like climbing?
Autumn is here and pushing us inside for climbing. That means training over fun, so how do we choose what to train?
The weather has turned autumnal with windy storms and heavy rain. That limits what we can do outside, but luckily a new series of nearby geocaches has appeared that we should go and search for.
A final week of summer? Early morning surfing and new (for us) crag trad climbing give examples of how I learn and how I have learnt over the last 30 years. I might not be a good example.
How did I get here?
More sport climbing on the sea cliffs/quarries at Rhossili and what grades mean to me as a middle aged hack.
Let’s go climb Shelob’s Lair on Paviland, Gower. Wales. Because it’s got a cave and a hole in the roof to climb through, and because we saw it last week from the sea when kayaking. It’s pretty high up. This should be a bit of an adventure. There are a couple of other things to do at Paviland too.
