The new season is upon us.

Hi and welcome back. 

My last post back in April does seem a long way off even though its only been 7 months.  I had no idea when I embarked with the blog that time between seasons would become shorter.

I also had no idea that the conditions we would encounter would provide such interesting and amazing climbing conditions,  so many new new routes and provide so much energy in North Wales winter climbing.

I do hope that this is the case this winter. If this proves to be,  then we are in for some really new hard routes. The approach to training in view of new routing in N Wales, as ever, is on the move and hopefully those climbers will reap the benefits. 

I have to pass on a huge thanks to all those that have supported the blog, the thanks I have received off so many climbers and the way  that climbers have used it to move Welsh winter climbing onto another level.

It brings me to say,  that the blog , as you know it, is to cease this season.  Why ? you may ask when we could be on the brink of another great season. A very good question, the answer being the time it takes up and the mental energy it takes out of me.  

The success of the blog and its associated areas, means it takes over a lot of my mind in the winter months. Combine this with my own desire to get out, put new routes up, keep track of the all the action means    I find it a constant pressure. Yes,  self induced I admit and a pressure which I find extremely interesting,  exciting and fulfilling  However, after 6 or so years I need to ease off. 

That is the issue, easing off. Not something I am good at. So its all or nothing and I am afraid its going to be nothing this year.  

So I offer my apologises if you will miss the blog. However, I hope you all have a cracking winter here in North Wales. 

Finally,  I thank Mountain Equipment and DMM for their support.   It has helped towards its success and help provide so much information. 

Maybe next year 2014-2015 I will be back.

Cheers Baggy
