The Arc’teryx Squamish Exposed event took me to some new skills, I had to lean into some discomfort around feeling out of my comfort zone with trad climbing and crack climbing - both of which are mega fun but not things I do a lot of. Two hectic and full days with @_drew_smith_ and @seecaitclimb came together in the form of a beautiful photo reel edit from Drew. Check it out, link in my profile 😊

It's been a while since I wrote a blog update...is this kind of writing getting outdated or is there still a place for it?

I actually quite like writing them, the process makes me reflect and often results in consolidated learning. Also, it's really nice to have longer-form musings on experiences or trips to look back on. The memories are wonderful but they do fade over time and re-reading old blogs can be a lovely trip into the past.

So, please have a read if it interests you, and, if not, I'll get some joy out of re-living it in years to come! 😊

@davidmason85 on Electroboogie (8A) in Magic Wood.
David went to Magic Wood recently and having not been there for quite a few years and the changes he saw surprised and upset him. He has written a thought provoking piece about the need for gentle use and greater conservation in our most popular climbing areas, especially as the numbers in our community grow.

The #squamishexposed shoot was such a blast. Two days of epic and exhausting running around trying our best to capture the essence of Squamish climbing! Six teams consisting of a world class photographer, an @arcteryx athlete and a member of the public went head to head to create some awesome imagery. Tonight the reels get shown at the #arcteryxacademy , come down and check them out!

The @arcteryx Alpine academy is in full swing here in Chamonix! It’s been non-stop with so much fun stuff going on - clinics, seminars, masterclasses and tonight there will be food, beer and films! 🎉🥂 It’s all about learning, sharing and enabling 👍🏻 I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the event, teaching on a single pitch climbing clinic on Friday, a bouldering clinic today and also offering a seminar (Yoga for Climbing) and a Master Class (Cultivating Determination in your Goals - pictured here) in the evenings.
It’s great seeing so much psyche and enjoyment in one place and meeting so many fun people 😊 📷: @katy_whittaker

Throwback to a 2012 trip to Magic Woods.
I was supposed to be in the air right now with @davidmason85 , heading to Magic Woods for a short trip. Although sport climbing is more my focus now, I was really looking forward to the joys and simplicities of a bouldering trip with friends. Sadly it’s not to be as I hurt my shoulder last week and it’s just not up to it. So I’m sticking around in Sheffield to focus on the rehab side of things. It’s improving each day so fingers crossed it won’t be long before I’m back to normal. Have a wonderful trip guys! 😊💪🏻 Massive thanks to @samradcliffephysiotherapy for his support 👍🏻.
