Tom thumb and lots going on

This summer has been a struggle in terms of my personal climbing.

A broken thumb back in April,  put pay to any thought of cranking, getting crag fit and getting out loads.

So with that in mind, best to get any injury fixed, so a lay off and rehab was in order.  However, I still managed to fit in a variety of requests, which did allow me to get out on the rock and help with the rehab.

So with a variety of days delivered , from private guiding , teaching climbing, private coaching, rescue skills, alpine rock route training and sea cliff climbing,  the last 6 months have been quite busy.

On top of this, there were a couple of AMI workshops, one on turbo multi pitch and the other on improvised rescue.

With the mixed bag of weather the last 5 months has given us, there has been a lot of juggling, but the weekends have often delivered the good weather which has worked out and fitted in well.

With winter only  3-4 months away time to start thinking about the white stuff. To be fair I had decided to start training back at the beginning of August, more on this and winter prep later in the month.
