First up, we are proud to welcome Steve Cale, Mercia Fell Runners, into the dedicated assembly that is the High Sports Ambassadors. Steve’s good-natured, friendly character belies his serious determination to fell running, but his past results speak for them selves; Skiddaw race winner 2010, 10th in the British Championships, Shropshire Summer & Winter Champion 2009 – 2011, Long Mynd Valleys winner 2012. You can read more about Steve and the rest of our Ambassadors here.
In other Ambassador news, Tom Fenwick has been attacking the Peak District and between showers and sleet, sent the super-classic test piece boulder problem Brad Pitt (7c+). The video below shows Ben Moon on Brad Pitt, taken from the film Hard Grit.
Ed Booth is currently hanging off steep stuff at the French limestone crag of Boux, so expect some stories of pulling hard in the sun when he returns.
Jonathan Cain and Pat Novelli have just returned from Font, so hoping for some more excellent pictures from them.
I’ve been staying a bit more local, but over the last couple of weeks have managed to make ascents of both Rigpa (7b+) and Kyloe In (7c) at Nesscliffe.
