I actually can’t remember when I started working on this latest project, I know the idea was muted after I wrote North Wales Climbs, and kind of put on a back burner. However, over the last two years, the work has picked up with me…
Spent a couple of Cold days in the Slate Quarries climbing with James McHaffie, who as ever is on fire, even if the weather is not. He did a couple of tough E5s whilst we were out, both of which I failed to get even close to doing clean! I lead a couple of F6a+ as well as seconding him.
It has been a while since I spent time in the quarries, probably got a bit sick of them when I wrote the guidebook. But the first day around Rainbow slab I captured the main image above. The second day was into the wild california where caff did Wedlock Holiday a really challenging E5 that I have seen take the scalps of several notable ‘flatheads’ in the past, but that what you get for E5 6c!!!

So I had an amazing few days Climbing in Riglos, I am looking to run some courses here next year. So if you like multi pitch adventure sport climbing, then the climbing in Riglos will not disappoint. Check out sunnier climbs.com to see when we are running courses or contact via here.
So after a load of issues this year from heart opps, back opps and my best friend having a serious accident I have been rather lost when it comes to climbing for myself. However just before I headed south for spain I sneaked down to Red Wall with a friend Tasha for a quick ascent of Wendigo. Perhaps one of the finest and easiest routes on Red Wall at E2.
It was Tashas second sea cliff experience, as such I thought she did amazingly well to not ‘freak-out’. Thats for the belay Tash and look forward to seeing you in Spain in December.
