/ Update on my BMC ready Ready to Rock course.
On Saturday I attended a BMC Ready to Rock course with Adventure Expertise. I had an amazing time and learnt a lot. The crag we went to was Stanage North - The High Neb area. We did some toproping after learning how to build and assess natural rock anchors and learning how to use a guide book. After toproping we were taught all about trad gear and placing trad gear and even got to do our own placements then remove it with a nut key if the placement was done too enthusiastically - I was good at placing gear.
I knew a lot of stuff already and the instructor was impressed with my knowledge.
Sounds like you had a great weekend
Yep I sure did.
I did some walking the previous day to!
Hope you are psyched form more.
Yes I am!
F*ck yes Sav. Mega psyched that you finally get to get your hands on those crags you've been dreaming about for so long!
Must have been a big moment for you stepping off that train?
I did the journey to Sheffield before and from Sheffield to Hathersage also....
It was a big moment getting my hands on the grit and placing gear!
These look familiar!
Great news Sav... are you sponsored by Outside now? ;-)
That's an idea I could be sponsored to drink pints of coffee and eat chip butties.
No, I'm not unfortunately....
I did have lovely lunch there though....
Homemade chicken, leak and mushroom pie with all the timings.
Great to hear you finally made it Sav!
Onwards and upwards
I am hooked on Hathersage. I love g g e cuteness and compactness of the place....
Defo coming back for more grit action.
Love the cuteness and compactness of the place.
Let us know when...more of your fan club can turn up and meet you.
Defo. Will do.
Awesome news, now start the addictive habit of logging your climbs!
There will be a trip report soon.
Cool as beanz!
Super cool as baenz! G-R-I-T!
How do I write a trip report?
You could write it in your blog and post the link here. Or, if you would like it to be published as an article on UKC, you could mail Natalie Berry through her profile (click on "email user") and ask about the possibility.
You are a great help.
