Hi.

On Saturday I attended a BMC Ready to Rock course with Adventure Expertise. I had an amazing time and learnt a lot. The crag we went to was  Stanage North - The High Neb area. We did some toproping after learning how to build and assess natural rock anchors and learning how to use a guide book. After toproping we were taught all about trad gear and placing trad gear and even got to do our own placements then remove it with a nut key if the placement was done too enthusiastically - I was good at placing gear. 

I knew a lot of stuff already and the instructor was impressed with my knowledge.

F*ck yes Sav. Mega psyched that you finally get to get your hands on those crags you've been dreaming about for so long! 

Must have been a big moment for you stepping off that train? 

Good lad.

Thanks.... 

I did the journey to Sheffield before and from Sheffield to Hathersage also.... 

It was a big moment getting my hands on the grit and placing gear!

That's an idea I could be sponsored to drink pints of coffee and eat chip butties.

You could write it in your blog and post the link here. Or, if you would like it to be published as an article on UKC, you could mail Natalie Berry through her profile (click on "email user") and ask about the possibility.

It's Summer and Mountain Spirit has finally been out climbing.  With a bit of luck the sequels will be coming thick and fast.

It's good to see a positive thread for once.
