Nothing major has gone down since the last post, just lots of waiting around for Bricktop to dry out. It finally dried enough to have a first redpoint a week or so back making good progress and feeling strong so we'll see what happens. In between we've been ticking our way through some of the hidden crags around the Peak. With the good old crag of Turkey Dip getting a bit of action. Last week we made quick ascents of the crags crack classic Step On It (7c+) and Jons offering, Unleashed (7c). Forgotten just how good this little venue is, wicked for a quick evening or afternoon hit.

Tomorrow we are heading up to Malham for a couple of days to meet up with Robbie and Nat, who have been crushing hard up there for the last few weeks. Props to those geeza's! There are a few things I'm syked to finish off and have a barney on and it'll be good to have a change of scene.
Some more photo's have come through from the Ceuse trip so check them out below.

And Last but not least a huge big up to Ed for his recent success at the youth worlds in Imst, amazing effort and super stoked for ya bro. Peace.

Ceuse photo dump

Rather than write an epic on the Ceuse trip I thought I'd post up a big stash of photos along with some video and let them do all the talking instead. Peace out to all the amazing people we met out there, I'm sure we'll be back for more in the future! Check out the Hamer blog for a run down on some of wicked lines those boys crushed and I believe Robbie will be writing up a big report for UKC sometime soon.
Once again a huge shout out to Dirk Smith for some of the pictures, cheers bro!
Word up to the lads in Austria and good luck to Ed and everyone competing in Imst over the coming days.
