Team update

Head on over to UKClimbing to find out what the Mammut team have been up to during the last couple of months.

Hot again today so we're resting up and chilling before getting back on it tomorrow. Ice cream and fresh orange juice all round!

Costa del Peak

Here are some cool shots from the weekend in the sun! Shout out to Kristian again for his re-bolting efforts on Moat Buttress. If you fancy somewhere different with some quality rigs then get yourself down to the waters edge! Cheers.

Hallowed be My Name, 7c+

Summer might finally be showing some signs of getting itself in gear this week and not before time! Hopefully it might dry the soggy lime out and people can get back on track. Feeling pretty strong right now and doing a lot of training so really hoping the weather stays like it is at the minute. I'm still working on the Germany video but check out the highlights below of the Mammut Blocmaster IFSC World Cup that was held over the weekend. Big up to Team GB who crushed it out in Innsbruck and the Juniors that kept it real at the European Youth Cup in Ratho!

Also if you've not checked out John Ellison's page yet on Justgiving, then go give him your support. I've only really met John once or twice but I know he's a top guy and done a massive amount for the British Team over the years. Go help him reach his target!

Peace out and word to the youth chillin in Spain right now, use all that Haddon training to the max bro. x

Some grit...

Since getting back I've been adjusting to Peak life again which has seen a return to the grit! We thought this stuff was done for the season but I spent the weekend hanging out on the edges with the Hamer homies pottering up a few routes. We did the classic E5 Goosey Goosey Gander on Saturday and then a trip to Ramshaw the following day where Sam smoothly dispatched Never Never Land E7 6b in his usual cool style. Myself and Ed got syked for the lead then decided we were more keen for a brew and roast dinner back at the crib!
I'm currently editing a load of footage we took in Germany so I'll post it up soon as its all done, be sure to check in and give it a watch. It'll be nothing special, just a couple of muppets dossing around and doing the odd bit of climbing! Peace


Ed forgot to tie in...

Back int Peak

Our time in the Jura has come to an end and we're now sitting back at home watching the rain fall outside. We both had an amazing 12 days over there, after a shaky start involving a hire car that refused to start, but it all came good and we were able to climb some pretty sick lines and party German style with our friends! There are just so many fantastic routes to do and we barely even scratched the surface. We'll definitely be going back in the near future to finish off projects and explore the forests some more!

Some of our favorite ascents of the trip were:

King Lui, 7c - Flash
Ekel, 7c+ - Second go
Leftfield, 8a
Pretty Girl, 7c+/8a - Second go
Massaker, 7c - Second go

Huge thanks go out to Tanja and her family for giving us somewhere to stay and showing us around. We really appreciated all of your help!
For the Ceuse end of trip report last year I just uploaded a bucket load of pictures and I'm going to do the same again this time, so take a look. They do all the story telling for you!
