Climbing Gear

My favourite gear

★ Boots: Climb X Rock Star
Lace up makes this shoes very precise and a secure fit.
Twisted, slightly down-turned last for edging and overhangs

★ Quickdraw: CAMP Orbit
Super light weight, no teeth easy to clip and clean.
Great for sport climbing.

★ Harness: Cassin Laser
Very comfortable and light weight.
Pre-Threaded Buckle on the waist makes it easy to take on and off.

★ Rope: Tendon Master 8.9mm
Super skinny single rope perfect for RP!

★   Belay Device: Trango Cinch
Smooth and easy paying out, much smaller than grigri easy handling for my small hands ;-)

Complete Control

I am happy I sent Complete Control (8a) yesterday at Kilnsey.

It was perfect conditions, cool breaths and very quiet. I really enjoyed all moves and felt very relaxed.When I reached the top I didn't feel that this was my limit. If compare my previouse projects this hasn't taken me a long time to complete. I feel much stronger than last year, defenitly all the winter hard training is paying off.

For now, no more long projects. I just want to climb and climb well in all styles of climbing, quick and efficent! I feel I 've just reached the starting level of climbing.
My climbing aim for this summer is to become a 'Better climber'!
