This next month is a busy one for me as i’ve taken on a massive stint of @scarpa_uk boot demos ๐Ÿ˜ณ it’s hard work travelling all over scotland and ireland in the van ๐Ÿš ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช โ›ด going from wall to wall talking to climbers about climbing shoes ๐Ÿ‘  but actually... i freaking love it!!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ
โ €
i love climbing shoes (especially scarpa as they’re the best!) and i love climbing ๐Ÿง—‍โ™‚๏ธ and i love talking!!! so it makes complete sense to me ๐Ÿ˜Š what i love about these events is people who love climbing and want to get more from their shoes coming up and chatting to me about it ๐Ÿค“ i’m a total nerd and i think i’ve learned quite a bit about shoes from guys like @nathanhoette and @heinzmariacher at @scarpaspa so i think i have a lot to offer. i’m also not the kind of climber who gets away without their feet ๐Ÿ˜‚ ask the guys at @latticetraining ๐Ÿ˜… their data is proof that i’m weak as a kitten for the grade i’ve climbed, but maybe that’s either proof im good with my feet, or possibly that scarpa have magical properties ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽฉ
โ €
anyway, for the next month im bumming around climbing walls in scotland and ireland ๐Ÿ™‚ through the days i’ll be training and evenings i’ll be showcasing the best that scarpa has to offer, so please come and chat to me about climbing!!! and if you wanna train then you’re welcome to join me through the day ๐Ÿ˜‰ you can see my tour dates on my robbie phillips athlete page on facebook - i’ve pinned the post!

I wasn’t climbing at fridays @edenrockedinburgh bouldering competition because i had a better job... ๐Ÿ˜œ i was running the @frictionlabs demo which basically meant i walked around with a bowl of white powder to get folks high... on the boulders that is!
โ €
i wish i could have competed ๐Ÿ˜ž not done a comp in ages and the problems this round were great fun (i did them the day after). i will admit though i really enjoyed watching folks flail from the side lines and offering advice (and chalk) whilst taking on absolutely zero responsibility ๐Ÿ˜‚ my general quip was “if you fall off, it’s either because your s**t or you’re not using enough friction labs!!!” ๐Ÿ˜˜
โ €
i’m a good sponsored climber ๐Ÿ˜ #chalkmatters ๐Ÿงช

The most intense experience of my life...
โ €
my friend alan carne fell whilst climbing a 700m big wall in rural madagascar ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฌ, breaking his leg in three places resulting in an open fracture wound, an epic descent from the route, a 5 hour walk back to the village and a 5 hour drive to the nearest medical unit! ๐Ÿฅ
โ €
an experience i won't ever forget, mainly because it was such a horrific experience, but also because @alastair__lee caught the whole thing on film!
โ €
come join us at @kendalmountainfestival next week on friday 16th for an extra-special extended cut of the film ๐ŸŽฅ including behind the scenes footage.
โ €
al and i will also be there to chat about the experience, answer your questions and hang out with you fine folks at the after party ๐Ÿฅณ

Thanks to all the lovely messages from folk about our film “blood moon” ๐ŸŒ“ it’s only been a week since it premiered in edinburgh and already there have been several more screenings across the u.k. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง and i’ve only heard good stuff! frankly it’s getting a bit dull... ๐Ÿ˜’ i’d like to see some more negative comments... ๐Ÿคฌ could somebody please start a ukc forum rant on how “blood moon” is actually incredibly sexist and racist and how “that robbie phillips just comes across as a complete bastard!” ๐Ÿ˜œ that would be lovely thanks!
โ €
seriously though... thanks a lot guys! @alastair__lee did a phenomenal job of pointing the camera at us and sticking the clips together to make a very watchable film ๐Ÿ™‚ i’ve watched it 3 times since the premiere and it just keeps getting better... ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you to everyone who came along to the brit rock film tour world premiere ๐ŸŽฅ on thursday night โ˜บ๏ธ for me it was really wonderful to see so many friends and old faces from the scottish ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ climbing scene descend to one spot for a night of pure big screen adventure!!!
โ €
all the films were wonderful, but i would like to personally thank @alastair__lee for our film "blood moon". i wasn't sure how i'd feel seeing our adventure on the big screen having been edited by someone else, but actually, it was exactly how i remembered the trip!
โ €
no doubt alastair's skill as a filmmaker has a lot to do with that, but i also think that we all worked extremely well together, got on better than we could have imagined and this certainly comes across well in the film.
โ €
if you want to see it then there are screenings across the uk - just check out:
โ €
www.britrockfilmtour.com
โ €
there are 6 films in total:
โ €
"brazilian line" - brits climb big bit of rock in brazil whilst getting stung by killer wasps! ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ
โ €
"whizz kid" - william bosi climbs hard bit of rock in england and says the word "fuck" 20 times! (cert 18)
โ €
"freeflow" - hazel findlay runs about wales drinking fresh un-bottled water!!! ๐Ÿ’ง ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ
โ €
"undiscovered" - dave macleod climbs unclimbed rocks in scotland accessible by small dingy ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ ๐Ÿšฃ‍โ™‚๏ธ
โ €
"just anna" - anna taylor gets unclimbed bit of rock stolen off her by nasty cumbrians!!! ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ ๐Ÿง—‍โ™‚๏ธ
โ €
"blood moon" - robbie phillips (and sidekicks) climb big bit of rock in madagascar whilst looking fabulous... ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฌ ๐Ÿง—‍โ™‚๏ธ

I’ve been running through loads of @_drew_smith_ photos from our trip to cochamó earlier this year for my upcoming slideshows ๐Ÿ’ป reminding me how important partnerships in climbing really are โœŠ๐Ÿ˜Œ i hate being that pleb on instagram whose regurgitating sentimental c**p ๐Ÿ’ฉ but... i’m really psyched having my buddy @ian.cooper101 for some badass projects over the coming year(s) ๐Ÿ˜˜

Yosemite might have been where i learned to climb corners, but cochamó is where i’ve been putting it into practice ๐Ÿ˜‰
โ €
we cleaned and bolted (where there was no gear) this pitch in 2017, and when we went back in 2018 i had an onsight attempt! the inside of the c***k was still pretty dirty and crumbly and the face was exfoliating quite a bit, but i think my attempt was valiant enough wouldn’t you say @ian.cooper101 and @_drew_smith_ ??? ๐Ÿ˜…
โ €
although i got pretty high, the difficult stem corner is only the start of the problems ๐Ÿ˜ฐ afterwards you have to tackle a bouldery section on huge fridge-like blocks which you have to slap your way up, followed by the most intense undercut traverse i’ve ever experienced (still working on figuring that bit out if i’m honest). think “great roof” pitch on “the nose” but leftwards and much much much harder!
