/ Climbing prezzies you've receveived
So far a rab infinity endurance jacket and a HH merino top, my old one got ripped beyond repair!
Got some presents from my Mum to arrive, I asked her for a helmet cam (yeah yeah yeah I know, but it's for self assement, atleast that's what I tell myself)
mmmm... maybe my socks are not that great..........
winter vomiting. Dirty feckin relatives. Flat coke never tasted so good
Not unwrapped anything yet although I did buy myself a couple of warthogs and some dmm ice hooks and some new gaiters. Since purchasing I have cursed the lakeland weather
Flight to Spain in February half term. Sunshine anyone ?
Hello again, happy Christmas. Well I was on a ski trip around those dates, but seen as I've just handed my notice in at work to go and work for myself, my holidays are now my own, I would be able to manage a climbing trip as long as I found that we were happy sitting on ledges together and it was on a proper northern climbers budget.
Montane Punk Balaclava - makes me look like Spiderman 8-)

Sorry?? What's that??
A ficking icescraper with a brush on it.
Switches!!! ;-> (Not out yet though, so have to be patient...) and an ultrapod mini for taking better night time walkin/out photies. Feeding The Rat and realising my rat is hungry and I need a job where I can go on an exped once or twice a year. A book on advice for how to sail solo around the world. Jura, Jura Superstition and a pork pie (climbing, whisky and pork pies are hand in hand.)
Lots of beer - for the apres climb I presume.
70L haulbag from the inlaws. new harness with some cash from the grandparents.
Mammut smart belay device and krab Plus western grit guide book :) My partner is good, although she refused to buy me a shorter rope, but I'm more than happy with my gifts, western grit was a good surprise; now to start ticking the boxes.
5+6 straight ups in Fontainebleau and an Alpkit Filo jacket in electric blue :) very happy
They are cool, my lad has a few. Look up to see if you can modify them to make them more powerful :) I've stripped two of my lads down to up the power.
Meco base layer, merino liner gloves, spinner leash and some airtecs!!!!
Bring on the snow!!
A screwgate krab, down booties and I bought myself a ME Eclipse Hoodie with Xmas tips from my customers.
An sunto altimeter watch
Over the Moors
Yorkshire Gritstone Vol1 Almscliff to Slipstones
a finger board so planning to become a savage for summer.... or blow all my tendons to pieces :)
A Whillans harness!
Not climbing related, but pretty special to me...
A day driving a Ferrari, a Lamborghini and an Aston Martin.
Advanced motorcycle test
Two track days with Jamie Whitham
Pretty awesome presents if you ask me :)
I got a pair of 5 10 camp fours and a set of torque nuts. All in all very happy :)
Oh and an altimeter watch :-D
I got a chalk bag :-)
The missus somehow arranged a signed copy of Andy KP's Cold wars which I am very very pleased with!
Hehe, only problem is I had to buy them myself

If she'd looked really hard she could have got an unsigned one. Maybe next time...
The Christmas present haul this year was mostly climbing related so I am looking forward to the weather improving. Possibly the most amazing present was an Exped Megamat 10LXW which is more comfy than a comfortable thing, I am looking forward to spending some time on that.
Please say you are joking! I got a grigri 2 so you can enjoy a nice firm catch when you fall off. Fancy some sport climbing?
A straight pint glass and a mug. Each with a resin climbing hold attached to the side as a handle. 10/10 to the kids for effort on that one.
If you're a Royal Marine, they are the definitive 'Wet hold'
I got two lovely new half ropes.....that say single rope on them. Bugger!
He clearly has no idea, but I'd never tell him!
