2012 was a remarkable year for climbing, what with David Lama kicking the year off by free climbing the Compressor Route on Cerro Torre, Alex Honnold speed soloing 'the triple' in Yosemite, and Adam Ondra climbing the world's hardest sport route at a whopping 9b+, plus loads of other amazing action.
2013 looks set to be a great one, will we see a 9c sport route from Ondra? And what will Hazel Findlay do after her amazing effort on El Capitan? Who knows...
Wishing all UKC readers a fantastic 2013 full of climbing, be it rock, ice, boulders or big walls.
And to quote top UK climber Tim Emmett on his Facebook page:
"...Live 2013 like its the only year in your life. Go for it..."
