Massive congrats to my mate @niallmcnair for a successful highball ascent of the modern andy earl classic “darkside” at back bowden.
โ €
i did this early last year after an evening playing on the bottom with @timblake54 . he inspired me to give it a go actually and within that week i’d gone down, had a top rope session on it and managed to send it the next session with the help of a bouncy castle ๐Ÿฐ i’d created out of mine and @francocookson enormous pads. tim then went back with @alex_r_moore and bettered the style as a ground up boulder.
โ €
i can remember suggesting it was around f7c+ if it was to keep in line with “county ethics” (7c). i think this is what niall and the lads thought too.
โ €
the real challenge of this climb is its height, but the landing is actually very flat making it an ideal ground up boulder. it still feels very scary at the top and despite the topout not being that hard, when you’re that high up and don’t know what you’re doing, it would be a real “heart in mouth” moment.
โ €
it was also cool to see niall come up with some subtle variations to the way i did it. it might be a straight forward crimp ladder, but there’s always ways of taking weight of the fingers and it looked like niall staying true to his roots figured it out ๐Ÿ˜‚
โ €
well done buddy! that’s a great tick to add to your ever growing list.

is there anywhere quite like it? ๐Ÿ˜ as a kid growing up in edinburgh ๐Ÿฐ i took for granted my homeland. having travelled the globe ๐ŸŒŽ i’ve come to realise that scotland is a beautiful and unique country, i’ve never seen a landscape like it anywhere else on earth and the sunrises over the snowy mountains ๐Ÿ” are unbeatable!

One of the most beautiful sunrises i have ever witnessed ๐ŸŒ„ my first visit to an teallach and the crag didn’t disappoint either - an almost himalayan looking hill from afar, i was like “are we still in scotland?” ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

Choices.
โ €
on pitch 15 you can either take the tech-tastic stem corner or bust out right as i’m doing for the burly fridge hugging boulder!!! ๐Ÿ’ช
โ €
everyday we have to make choices. they dictate our lives, sometimes in meaningful ways, sometimes not, but they change our life irrespectively. i am terrible at making choices ๐Ÿ˜ฉ i think too much about what it means. just ask @marieclaretaggart , i’ll spend half an hour flicking through netflix ๐Ÿ“บ trying to find something to watch… ๐Ÿคฏ
โ €
i don’t want to watch something shit! ๐Ÿ’ฉ it’s a nightmare!!!
โ €
recently i made a choice that meant i didn’t get to go somewhere i really wanted to go, to do something i really wanted to do, with a friend i really wanted to go with… but the choice was made for myself, for my future, for something i felt was worth the sacrifice of short-term pleasure.
โ €
there will be another trip… and no doubt, more choices!

Taking time for ourselves seems a rare thing in the 21st century. our lives are so busy, filled with a million and one things to do with only a finite time to do them โฐ it can be dizzying and often difficult to see that it’s happening before it’s too late! ๐Ÿคฏ
โ €
a year or so ago, a friend of mine, bob (@rab6t ) an ex chief police officer ๐Ÿ‘ฎ‍โ™‚๏ธ and personal resilience coach asked if i’d be interested in some coaching sessions from him. this wasn’t climbing coaching, it was a sort of life coaching (i don’t know if that’s the right term to be honest). it basically took the form of an hour or two drinking tea โ˜•๏ธ at a local cafe, where we spoke about climbing, work, goals, trips, stresses as well as positive things that have happened ๐Ÿ™‚ i will be honest, i was sceptical at first that i needed any of this.
โ €
“i’ve got a handle on my life, why do i need any help?”
โ €
but even into the first hour of our first session i found myself unloading a heck of a lot of stuff that i had no idea i was thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ bob chatted away and took notes ๐Ÿ“ and at the end of our time i felt a sort of lightness and clarity to the world ๐ŸŒ i had found this meeting so incredibly valuable, if only as a means to vocalise to an unbiased yet supportive person, the trials and tribulations of life ๐Ÿ˜Œ
โ €
i’ve had 3 sessions in the last 1.5-2 years and each one has been as insightful as the last. i do find it hard to make time for myself, i’m just not that important to me i guess? but i found making time for someone else to have a peek inside my head seemed very worthwhile!
โ €
we often don’t allow ourselves time to reflect, this is probably one of my biggest weaknesses. i only want to be moving forward! but in order to go forward we need to be able to look at ourselves both in the past, present and future ๐Ÿค– if i could offer any advise on this matter, if like me you struggle with this, consider talking to someone about it? and if you’re based in scotland ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ bob is a good listener โ˜บ๏ธ

โšก๏ธflashbackโšก๏ธone of the first times i used an ice axe for climbing ๐Ÿง—‍โ™‚๏ธ
โ €
i was invited to the @redbull white cliffs competition, an event held on the isle of wight where we had a speed battle up a 100m chalk cliff protected by hammered in bulldogs ๐Ÿถ
โ €
my preparation was one day at newtyle quarry with @greg_boswell ๐Ÿ˜‚ didn’t go too badly mind, i flashed “too fast too furious” (m11+) as one of my first drytool climbs ever!
โ €
at the redbull event, some of the best winter climbers and world cup ice climbers were invited including @realwillgadd @timemmett @heeyongpark @eimirmcswiggan and @annawells89
โ €
i came away with a pretty respectable 5th place, seconds behind will gadd ๐Ÿ˜Ž not bad for my first go at it!
