So we saw how Kim’s climbing technique is great, but her strength and finger stamina are holding her back on steeper routes. But what about her climbing head? Let’s see if she wants to lead some vertical stuff and how she gets on with that mentally.
This is something we all go through as climbers when we’re not leading routes regularly, and the mental part of rock climbing is often the biggest challenge, and the most rewarding part when we get it right.
Kim vs vertical
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?
Time and tide
A bank holiday weekend – what to do? What’s the tide doing?
Hiking, rock climbing and kayaking. All by or in the sea.
Quiet climbs and windy kayaks
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!
