Sweaty day at Gardom’s Edge last weekend. Myself and @jamesmetzger1 were trying Kidneystone f7B/V8.
Way too shit conditions to get the send in but was nice to get Marks roof original on the second go! Its a weird one, I dropped the flash because of how I thought I remembered @ikidson getting through the crux rather than doing what felt natural! Great send mate, that end is burly 💪

More shots from climbing the last few weeks, love getting out more with the great weather and getting inspired to train for some hard projects.

First shot is of @climbming on a classic Don whillans HVS Slippery Jim. About 3 seconds after this pic was taken Ming had a nice calm deck thanks to some pinging gear. He got it the go after.

The second shot is of @samswheatley getting on greener traverse. A lovely climb with a very Gritstone topout, trying to get as much milage in Sam was trying pretty much all the classic boulders at the roaches getting really close to some.

Third but not final is my(@helloitsando)latest project when we go to wrights rock at churnet. It’s the sit start to simple Simon and gets about f7C, I was close to finishing this off last session but I need to want it a lot more if I’m going to get it ticked.

Finally a pic of my mum, she didn’t bring a coat so she got to wear my nice big one and I found it hilarious 😂

Thank you all for your continued support of our photography and for hearing our often punterish stories on the rock 💪

‘Boyager V7/8’ at Burbage North. Amazing prow line with a mini sketch landing, two pyramid boulders spiking up from the ground right underneath the crux. My mental was a bit here and there for this one so I had to wait for the cavalry to arrive. (@willlmurphy 2nd pic of him smashing it)

In puntish desperation I fell slapping the top hold leaving half my skin on the final jug which has resulted in a forearm scar that’s been with me for over a month now. It’s strange that a few weeks before I saw someone experience the same type of skinjury and was really inspired by it. If not for the stranger I wouldn’t have finished this off, blood covering my arm, a flapper the size of a 50p on my hand I walked away with the tick all thanks to some nut case who reminded me that being a pussy gets you nowhere.

A couple of shots I’ve taken on my phone from the last few weeks on the Grit, absolutely loving the long days and great weather we’ve been having.
Some amazing sends have been made and a lot of people’s best days out climbing that they can remember, so happy to be around people who are passionate about climbing and to watch them grow.

More footage from Font a few weeks ago, @marcjourne flying up the classic La Marie Rose f6A and L’Hélicoptère f7A. @jamesmetzger1 was getting on La Balleine f7A while @samswheatley
was cleaning the camera for the whole world to see his cute face.
Training begins for 4 of our lucky crew, tonight is the start of a 2 month strength cycle of pure pain and beauty. I think a few of us will be joining but for me I’ll be focusing mainly on finger strength and my mental, I need to dive deep into my ego and get some passion flowing through the blood 💪

With the heaviest heart I’d like to dedicate this post to a beautiful person who left us far too soon. Katie had been climbing with us on and off for a few years and it breaks my heart that we won’t be making any more memories together.

There were so many amazing things about Katie, but it was the way she lived her life that stuck with me. The way Katie was, it would make me and others feel like we were in armour, she could fix the cracks in my soul with a simple smile, she saw me as me, not how I felt. She helped me through some extremely tough times dealing with mental health and I can’t say i’d be here without her.
-Andy

From all of us here at OpenCrag, we love you very much, Katie. We will miss you dearly and we will carry your fun-loving spirit in our hearts with us all on our future adventures. So for one final time… off belay.
