New circuits update

Currently, we've around 13 problems with the new Pink/Purple holds at a V3-V5 grade range. Positive feedback so far, I'm happy to say.
On Sunday the entire wall (except above-mentioned problems) is being stripped, and a team of 5 are blitzing the wall Sunday night/Monday morning. In addition to the usual crew of Percy Bishton, Andy, Rob and Jason Pickles, Chris Plant is setting problems. Chris has been setting for many years, and due to his Lancashire origins and mobile nature of the route-setting business, intended to call himself the "bolt-on wanderer".

New Fontainebleau guide in stock

Stone Country, the Glasgow-based publishing company, have recently added to their titles with a smart selected guide to Fontainebleau. This has photos and a tick box for every problem covered, together with very clear maps which should prevent even the most incompetent getting lost.
We have several of these new guides in stock for anyone planning their next Font trip.

congratulations to junior climbers

Well done to all the young climbers who made the trek down to Llangorse, to compete in the first round of the Welsh Climbing Championships. There were some excellent performances, including Adam Phizacklea who was 3rd in his age group- not bad for his first competition.
Full results can be seen on the website:
