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)

In reply to dale1968: I got a new lid as my girlfreind (and climber) has listened to my dry tooling reports and decided a full face crash helmet would be advisable to cope with falling rocks, falling axes, falling be-spiked climbers, and my old helmet tended to sit at a rather jaunty angle on the back of my head! Did not go full face but a new Petzl Elios that takes a visor is under the tree. 8-)

In reply to sarahkeast:

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.

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.

In reply to Southern Man:
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?
nniff - on 31 Dec 2012
In reply to dale1968:

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'
