long bouldering session with some friends, working on tidying up some previous completed routes and tackling the crux's of some unfinished projects. @Kyle: arriving at around 3:30 pm for my third climb, Deans second and Georges first we signed in and we took a walk round showing George the layout of the centre. booted and ready to go we moved to the traverse wall to warm up and then into the upper boulder chamber to finish stretching. Suffering from some pretty serious blisters due to soft baby hands. During this session i avoided big jug holds which are prime culprits for causing blister ...

my first surfing trip - Rest bay
my first attempt at surfing fairly small waves, easy for a beginners like my self. once finished moved on to a small bouldering session on the sea front. @Kyle: Had this trip in mind for a few weeks prior to going, just finding time out of my busy uni schedule was a tad difficult, however managed to squeeze it in on a Sunday after a heavy weekend of drinking. Waking at 7 am to begin our 3 hour journey from campus, we left with pain killers to hand and water to sooth our hangovers. Fortunately for us the weather for the day was clear sky's and highs of 25 degrees centigrade. The first hour ...

Box Through - Box Stone Mines
A straightforward trip leading two through box @JonnyC: Delivering on a previous promise we headed to box, parking in the lay by. After a swift return for the maps we headed over the field to Jack's, found it easily, and discovered a makeshift repair on the broken Gate. We headed in and immediately started picking our way to the north, showing KC and CC the wonders of Box along the way. Navigating by map came quite easily tonight albeit after a brief stop at 4 ways, we headed off to the north, but instead of making a ninety degree turn we

Exploring Goatchurch - Goatchurch Cavern
A pleasant novice trip to the drainpipe @JonnyC: Determined to deliver on my promise of an underground experience I picked up the boys and headed for the delights of Goatchurch. After a quick exploration of Avelines we strolled up west twin to drop into the main entrance. A little history and geology was shared before trying the slide and dropping down Giants steps. We explored the high level passage and headed down the terrace into the Boulder chamber. Kyle and Dean succeeded at the under over stone before we slipped under the cof

Kyle's first visit to Swildon's - Swildon's Hole
Leading Kyle down into Swildons for his first time, little drier than last week @JonnyC: An opportunity to show Kyle what Swildon's is all about and demonstrate the difference from Goatchurch! Water levels were ok, unfortunately nothing like last week when I omitted to drag the camera along. We headed down over the entrance rift, through the zig zags dropping down jacob's ladder into the short dry way, a lifelined twenty, down through the inclined rift to sump one which was nice and foamy again, Kyle was very keen to give it a go but not for his first visit. We m ...
Saltford to Victoria Bridge Road - Bristol Bath Cycle Path
@JonnyC: Nice little Sunday afternoon cycle out from Saltford up to Victoria Bridge Road. First outing of the baby seat, the helmet didn't go down well, and whilst Aaron didn't love the seat he got used to it enough to warrant doing it again. Stopped for a pint on the way out in the Dolphin Inn who served a superb pint of Doombar. 8.4mi
Bouldering session - St. Werburghs Climbing Centre
@JonnyC: Nice little bouldering session after belaying Kyle for a few routes, good fun but definately out of practice.
