With the winter weather being typically British, I haven’t been able to get out on my projects, and I’m really keen to get out there and get back on them. However, one good thing about the winter is the vibrant British indoor climbing scene. Been having a great time climbing and training with my friends at Nottingham wall, and entering plenty of climbing competitions. Most recently I’ve been in the Birmingham climbing comp at Creation wall. (Thanks to everyone there for the competition, the problems this time round were really good and testing.) I’m pleased to say I placed first, so things are looking good so far!
I’ve also been competing on home territory at the notoriously hard Nottingham Climbing Centre competitions, where 5b’s are about the equivalent of Font 7a! (Well not quite, but you get the idea!)
I had a great comp last week, starting off a bit shaky, on some very reachy 6a’s but then going onto flash English 6b’s… pleased to say I also won this one, and with one more round to go, it’d be nice to win the Birmingham and Nottingham leagues this winter.
Aside from competing, things are going really well with Berghaus. Had a great time meeting all the other athletes recently at a team meeting, meeting Sir Chris Bonnington for the first time was great; he’s a really down to earth person, and Leo’s just nuts! I also went to the Berghaus press event in the Lake District was fantastic, us boulderers aren’t normally too keen on walking, but the Lakes in January can be such a beautiful place, and the new kit from Berghaus is seriously impressive. (The new hoods on the jackets are something to look out for.)
So there we go, my winter so far, is training hard, competing as much as I can, looking forward to the next round of the Sheffield Works competition, getting frustrated because all my projects are wet! Finally, I am looking forward to some awesome grit conditions this spring. Look forward to seeing you out there, Leah.
