Good morning.

Nice read.

Sponsored by Petzl though?

Thanks. 

Ian Dunn hinted that I was sponsored by Petzl during a late afternoon climbing trip to Castleberg Crag after he had finished Physical Training 1 Works shop. He said if I loose my helmet I should ask for a new one from my sponsor a d he was happy that I climbed at Lakeland Climbing Centre Walls....

I was at Kendal Wall to train the day before the Coaching Children workshop.

Hi Sav, it's great what you are doing, but I would love your blogs to be less climbing infomercial and much more about you. That is what will make them unique. 

But keep up the good work.

 Good to see you getting out. Sounds like you need to get some jamming practice in to make the most of the grit!

Thanks.  

I am rely enjoying getting out - the whole thing including staying in accommodation, travelling and the climbing itself. 

I agree with you 100% on the jamming practice. 

Funnily enough Kendal Wall does have some handjamning features on one of top-roping walls in the main hall and I did get to practice a bit during both the BMC Fundas and Coaching Children workshop  - apparently there is French 6c+ crack route in the main lead climbing area.

Hi Steve. 

Thanks for your feedback. 

I was going to put some Neil Gresham Climbing Masterclass videos in my post about BMC Fundas and  Malham Cove trip but after reading your post I am not sure now.

Give the public what they want, I am but one opinion. But if I want info on Neil Gresham I can already find it. You are the only source of information about Mountain Spirit.

Cool as baenz. Was going to use the videos to demonstrate techniques we practiced. Also staff from Robbie Phillips How to be a better climber UKC series to tell people about the games we played.

What would be basically beyond awesome is a video starring you climbing outside (maybe practising some of those funky jams?)
