Lets Go Climbing!!

As the saying goes ‘For want of a horse the battle was lost’ and in a similar vain for want of a Colin Kirkus the trad climbing scene may have become a poor imitation of continental rock. It’s commonly believed that rock climbing in the UK started with Haskett Smith’s ascent of Napes Needle in the Lake District. From there onwards a number of luminaries pushed UK climbing to new grounds. Colin Kirkus was one of those who forged a path in the 1930’s. It became his decade.

New Shop Products - E9

E9

Few new climbing grades create myths or monsters, rarely are they game changers, not so with the grade of E9. The first E9 was the legendary Indian Face which made a new leap in boldness. It took the madcap genius of Johnny Dawes to create its fatal mystery. It is a perfect line up one the UK’s most imposing mountain crags and heart stoppingly bold. It’s a crag steeped in history. As the route gets steeper the gear gets worse, the line inescapable and the crux comes need the top. It remained unrepeated for 8 years.

Point Five Gully - Ben Nevis

Rites of Passage. Despite memory being a fickle thing, some climbs live long in our memories.  They are moments so powerful that they remain recognisable in our minds forever. They are the rites of passage that make us into the climbers that we are, and into the climbers that we’ll become. It may be our first climb, disorienting and fumbling or breaking into a new grade; it may be pushing our limit or taking that first big leader fall; or it may be ticking all the classics at our favourite crag or aspiring to the next challenge.
