Kim spent the winter getting strong for climbing and rediscovering her technical skills by bouldering and braving the cold Gower coastline when it stopped raining.
She has been struggling with the steeper climbs so far this year. But how does she do on slabs and less steep climbs?
A bank holiday weekend – what to do? What’s the tide doing?
Hiking, rock climbing and kayaking. All by or in the sea.
After Easter I took some time off work and had lots of time to do the things we like doing! The Gower was quiet again and we went cragging by the sea and kayaking in the sea before storm Hanna hit with her gale force winds.
Also, bluebells in the woods.
Not working. It’s great!
Paddling from Oxwich to Port Eynon and back in a perfect summer sea, passing the wreck of the Solor at low tide in Oxwich Bay that limped back here after being torpedoed by a u-boat in 1945.
Also climbing on packed Easter Rhossili sea cliffs in the sun. The Easter weather was perfect for a long weekend of adventures!
We’re out on the beaches and the coastline of the Gower peninsula looking for boulders to climb this week. And trying not to get cut off by the rising tide.
A dry week means some spring cragging outdoors by the sea. Let’s go somewhere new and try a couple of sport climbs that are supposed to be some of the best on the Gower.
We’re away in Cheltenham for the weekend. It’s been dry so we can climb, but what can we climb?
I wonder if there are any geocaches on this hill?
We need to meet Kim’s cave exploring needs so we’re off to a cave high up in the cliffs above Three Cliffs Bay. It’s going to take some scrambling to get there.
We’re off for the weekend to Wales’ capital city to see old friends and catch a physics lecture. As you do.
I’m actually taking some time off work. For a few days. Kind of. And the sun is out on the Gower! Let’s go!
