Last week @davidmason85 climbed Mortal Immortal (8B+) aka Sean’s Roof Sit Start at Blackwell Dale in the Peak District. After 15 sessions a hot, humid day reduced expectations and with a small beta change at the very end everything seemed to click into place. For the send video check out the link in our bio.
@michielnieuw kicked off his time here in the UK with a trip to the infamous Parisella’s Cave in North Wales. With quick sends of Rock Atrocity (7C), Hatchatrocity (8A), Lou Ferrino (7C+) and Louis Armstrong (8B) pictured here. He can now focus on some slightly more picturesque locations in the Welsh mountains.
New Moon athlete @hoseok_lee93 just sent his first V12/13 with an ascent of Lucky at Bukhansan, 🇰🇷. He first tried it earlier this year but with temperatures rising he left it for cooler days. However, patience didn’t last long and yesterday he topped out in a mere 27 degrees!!
@blockmonsterarnie up high on the long awaited second ascent of Orca (V9) in the Northern Grampians, 🇦🇺. This beauty was first climbed by Julian Saunders in 2000 but has had relatively little attention until recently after a key hold came off during the bush fires a few years ago. Nice one Simon 👏🏻.
Just had my first test drive in the new Boreal Ninja and they felt good straight out of the box. For those youngsters reading this the original Boreal Ninja was a pretty groundbreaking climbing slipper that came out in the 1980s. Jackie Goddoff started the design off and Jerry Moffatt and John Bacher finished it doing the toe shape and insert . So a stellar design team. It was named after Jerry’s GPZ 600R ninja motorcycle. Jerry also did the lace up version which turned into another pretty iconic shoe the black and pink Laser . I believe the Laser was the first low top lace up slipper which is how most performance shoes these days are designed. Here endith your history lesson in climbing shoe design! #climbingshoes#climbing#bouldering#trainhardclimbharder#jerrymoffatt
Ok I know this has nothing to do with climbing or Moon Climbing and the only vague connection is Sylvie’ surname but what the hell. I’m quite proud of how this photo turned out and the Slippery Stones is such a beautiful spot especially in this weather and the water wasn’t even cold. I feel very fortunate to live in Sheffield and have access to places like this so close to home.
