Yosemite for 3 weeks with Andy, Tom and Rob. Weekend with Ferdia climbing Central Pillar (E2) on Esk followed by a day ticking off Neckband Crag in sunnies as I forgot my normal glasses!

Climbed Magic Crack (HVS 5a) and the Hammer (HVS 5a) in between massive rain storms. West Ridge of Salbit with Andy for our first ED1. Frendo (D+) bin to bin. Week in Scotland Feb 2018 with perfect weather, climbed Window Gully (V 5), Aladdin's Mirror Direct (IV 4), Zero Gully (V 4), Salamander (V 4) and South Post Direct (V 4) along with some skiing. May Bank Holiday in Scotland with Andy and Rick, climbed Bludgers Revelation (HVS 5a) and Minus One Direct (E1 5b) which I've been waiting years to be dry. First time Katie and I climbed together, did Side Walk (E2) on Dow for our first Extreme Rock route followed by a wedding and a severe hangover! Failed trip to Scotland ended up with a massive day on Pillar climbing Megatron (E1 5a), Thanatos (HVS 5b+!) and Electron (HVS 5a) totaling 12 ptches. 3 day weekend in Llanberis with Jase climbing routes I've only ever dreamed of being dry, highlights were Nexus (E1 5b), Ten Degrees North (E2 5c), Vember (E1 5b) and White Slab (E2 5c). Katie and I's first trip to Scotland together, climbed Hoarmaster for my first VI and then Pot of Gold (V 6) for our first route together in winter! Magical. Weekend touring the Lakes in the van with Katie, which culminated in me falling off the belay ledge on Banzai Pipeline (E1 5c)... A week long holiday in Cornwall/Devon touring round the honeypots where we also managed a three day excursion to Lundy!
