    I've actually got no photos of interest. Once lock down ends ill start taking some and add some UK flavour to the thread.
    Weather's great now for climbing here after a disastrous autumn and winter.

    Well good news. My shoulder is not destroyed, but I should have taken a break right away. Just a a strained muscle. (delta apparently) which I didn't let heal.

    I should have had a 2 week break right after it starting annoying me. (who would have thought? )

    I'm starting to miss it to. I've been going through a weird phase the past couple seasons where I have a really hard time getting excited about existing routes and I'm only interested in developing my own lines. After a month of not touching rock or even plastic I'm crazing sunny limestone pitches and clipping bolts on the most poorly engineered and chossy lines...

    Sorry no action shots..., but I like it when you hike up to a Boulder with one pad and still have this crash zone. Stash pads for the win.
    7C/8A, V9/11 depending when you top out. Not a real traverse because it goes up as well.
    Crazy Hooks and power precision moves.
    Second Pic is from a friend who was there the other day.

    Thrid Pic is from a different area in the black forest. Some cleaning after this week of rain maybe.... FA will be mine! Click image for larger version.

    Sick looking bloc!
    I miss roaming around the woods looking for boulders. Not that there are any FAs left to be had in the Cottonwoods which would be accessible to people who don't climb into the double digits but so many areas fall out of favor and become overgrown, requiring an FA-like process when they're re-discovered. And it's so much more fun to do work on a boulder with a couple of friends than doing the same on a route dangling on a static line solo...

    checked out the dirtiest local choss pile since leaving the island risks 1000$ fines and they had it locked up tight.

    I found this checking out the project. Only one easy move less. But holy cow that could have been me under the block with the starting holds.

    And I found this mid range grade gem. Click image for larger version.

    Went for a drive and hike up Beaver Creek in the Big Belt Mountains with my wife today. The amount of Madison formation limestone around Helena is just mind boggling. Lots of choss but plenty of solid faces. There are probably only 50 developed routes in this canyon.

    Holy shit that is a lot of limestone. I've been roaming around UT for a while looking for big limestone to work on but the cherries have been picked a long time ago...

    Nice! Been over 20 years since I’ve camped at Miguel’s, never climbed those grades but had a lot of fun at the Gorge.

    Here's the chica on the shoulder of Edith Cavell with the West Ridge behind. Hope to get back up there with some good weather to bag some of these one day.

    I cleaned some stuff. Perfect granite and really great lines which are really hard to find in Germany because we have so little rock around which is worth it, not developed and not forbidden by environmental protection.

    Only one fa so far because the others are hard.
    First Pic is my wife getting the second ascent. 6a/6b v0/v1 (I don't really feel the difference)
    The rest are not yet graded. I was too tired to do them on day two. The prow should check in at V5-V7 (second and third pic) , the wall climb, with the perfect sloper volume bulbs you have to match, should be around V3-V5... (4th and 5th Pic) Although I havent checked the top out. So maybe I vastly underestimate things. Name:  IMG-20200510-WA0006.jpeg

    I thought I'd share... A friend sending an 8C /V15, second ascent. Look at his arms. I'm sure he's taking horse steroids! When I met him in the gym the first time he was a teenage kid and I was stronger than him. Two years later I wasn't. And 8 years later. This. And he has also sent a story of two worlds (8C) in ticino not just some no name local stuff in the Franken Jura.

    Back in the game, found a big old piece of choss to develop. The face is about 700' at its tallest with good potential. 3 pitches fixed via a convenient ledge halfway up, 3 to go above. The first pitch is way above my paygrade unfortunately so I ended up building a trail through heinously brushy talus while my crusher buddy started cleaning and equipping. The first 35m go at 13b, I sure hope things calm down above that or I won't be able to touch anything on the route!

    Gothic as fuck:
