Catch It...Snatch It...Dispatch It!

Yesterday afternoon I headed to the Peak with Alex Fry and Chris Davis. We all had a very successful bouldering session at Rubicon (also strangely known was Water-Cum Jolly). This was my introduction to peak limestone.  Big guns Alex Fry (aka Warwick Bear Rock manager) managed to send his second font 8a boulder problem, Dancing Fish on Kudos Wall. Quality effort. I managed to capture the ascent, check out below for video. Unfortunately Alex injured his finger on the final big move of the problem, which took took the shine off the success. The full extent of the injury in not yet known, we wish him and his finger a speedy recovery.

On a more mortal level, I managed to send A Bigger Tail and Kudos which was my first proper font 7a+. Chris managed A Bigger Tail and Kudos Traverse which was his first font 7b.We also managed to onsight Rubicon 7a+. Pretty good evenings climbing!

The evening light was very photogenic, managed to get a few good snaps:
