/ Bolting in the east Crete
Hello, I want to invite everybody who likes climbing and bolting to the east Crete. There are 70 new routes there. The canyons surrounding Zakros and Xerokambos villages have a lot to offer. There are many possibilities for new climbs.
We have rented a small old house in Zakros. We will be happy to share it with climbers who help us with bolting. I am going to Crete next week and will be there for 4-6 weeks.
I went there last year (based near Kapetaniana), maybe even climbed some of your stuff. I can only recommend the place. Nice climbing, good food, and in the evening a quick bath in the Lybian Sea...
I have no stuff in Kapetaniana. Another Czech climber is living and bolting there, Zbyněk Čepela. We are bolting in Zakros and Xerokambos. But it is as you say. Nice climbing, good food, awesome beaches, friendly local people.
Love climbing but loathe bolting. So, sorry can't join you.
So why bother to respond, then?
Good question. Felt jolted into it by the juxtaposition of loves.
Lake District-based runner Kim Collison has set a new speed record on the Bob Graham Round in winter. Kim completed the round in just 15 hours 47 minutes, knocking a big chunk from the previous fastest winter time of 18:18 set by Jim Mann in 2013.
