I returned from a kayaking expedition around Arisaig (NW Scotland) last weekend and have removed around 40 tiny (mite sized) ticks from my arms and legs!

I was in Glen Affric 3 weeks ago and got the same. They all start out that size btw, you were probably first host, so less likely to carry infections.

Been back in Sheffield for a few weeks whilst our attic is getting converted. It is super nice being back - feel right at home here. Lots has changed, but there’s lots of nostalgia from my uni days.

Had a traverse and catch up with a friend at rubicon (is there anything similar on Yorkshire Limestone?!), wall session with a friend, some fun jogs around bolehill and topped off with a very nostalgic session at broomgrove wall for an hour this evening (so close…)

A proper lovely few weeks. Could see myself moving back here. Biggest disappointment was that Tamper doesn’t sell their Ginger Crunch anymore.

I'm with Teaboy. Anything other than already having your hands on or within a t-shirt's-sag is going to be useless for spotting that.

Jake and Amy are pretty handy and know the rules. They made two of the most entertaining bouldering films on YouTube. Each still somehow at <1k views.

I know I’m bit outside youth culture these days but how does someone running round the woods in a rapists mask add to a climbing film.

M - 10km walk. Swam 0.5km in the murk.

T - Fingerboard pickups, left only, all grips, to 36kg. Right elbow rehab. pick-ups to 22kg. Hip flexibility.

W - Last minute change of plan due to flood warning in N Wales. The Environmental Agent suggested Cornwall. Drove down through biblical rain. Hip flexibility.

T - Chair Ladder, with the Environmental Agent. Hiked up Terrier’s Tooth (not banned but a bit birdy so missed the full summit experience) and the excellent South Face Direct.

F - Bosigran, with the Environmental Agent. Swapped leads on Ding and the good but pokey Visions of Johanna on the main cliff. Apparently I've done this before but have precisely zero recollection.

S - Checked out the Gallipoli Wall (Bosigran Ridge area) but this was damp so went back to the main cliff at which point it started raining properly. Took a rest day and did some hip stretches.

S - A damp Carn Barra. Led Axis and Exodus between showers. The Environmental Agent tried the “much attempted” Dialectic but E1s on damp and polished granite was a bit too much for her and I wasn't tempted either.



Great to get out of London for a few days even if the weather in Cornwall hasn't turned out to be much better than other parts of the UK: glorious sun one moment, pissing with rain 45 minutes later. The hedgerows are looking glorious with May flowers. (Very) easy trad. has proved to be exactly what the elbow needed, it’s been good all week. Now time to ramp things back up gradually.

Family get-together on Exmoor for the rest of this week so unlikely to be doing much climbing.
