I went bouldering today! First time on rock this year and to a venue that is renowned for taking no prisoners. Sure enough, I got my donkey kicked…

Craig y Longridge is a wave of perfect overhanging quarried gristone, just outside Preston, about an hours drive south for me. I’ve been a couple of times before, but not since the completion of the adjacent holiday park expansion, and the BMC buying the land below the crag to secure access. Plus points: the nice flat landings all the way along. Minus points: the loss of the view – you now look at the back of some horrible looking holiday lets. Oh well, at least we can still play there…

I met Neil there, and also bumped into a couple of chaps he knows, so it was a good humoured social affair.

The popular 'warm-up' area. Join the dots...

There's a hold there somewhere...

Suffice to say, we had enough mats!

More of the same tomorrow, though I’m not sure where yet. Hope the skin holds up, I’ve already lost one pad (ouch)…
