In Search Of Adventure

Traditional climbing is where my roots lie but sport is an easy tick, fitting in easily around work and kids and a desire to perform rather than be scared.

Afin de se mettre dans le bain en douceur et de ne pas brutaliser un genou quasi tout neuf, nous avons choisi, dans un premier temps, de faire des voies « à la journée », avec des sacs d’un poids, disons, « raisonnable ».
