Revo

Curious about the new Wild Country Revo belay device? Staff Member and coach, Jock on a Rope shares his thoughts...


I am what you would call a dyed in the wool Gri-Gri lover/abuser and I don’t mean the sad impersonators of late, no I am referring to the original and best. So you can imagine when I was offered up the use of the new spangly kid on the block (we have seen this before) REVO from Wild Country, I wasn’t exactly chomping at the bit to have a go.

Part 2 of Red Szell's blog feature's Am Buachaille, a 10 mile tandem bike ride and 30m swim, followed by the prospect of getting stranded on top of this iconic sea stack. 


Following from my last blog, I can now reveal the second project that Matthew and I hope to tackle this year.

Rock Climber, Adventurer, Author and first blind person to climb 'Old Man of Hoy', Red Szell has many stories to tell. Four years after his ascent of this iconic stack Red hasn't lost his Blind Ambition. 


I don’t do New Year’s resolutions.  Nevertheless each year, the first week of January is the time to put my money where my mouth is, as far as climbing is concerned.

The old way top revive ice screws was a little laborious.

With the winter season in full swing if you feel the need to sharpen your ice screws please feel free to pop into the shop and you can borrow our Petzl LIM'Ice sharpner.

Happy Ice Climbing from the Castle Shop

 

New blog from the Castle Shop staff!


The North Faces of the Alps.

The storm was due at 6pm, we would wake at 3.30am, get to the start of the route by 6am, then climb the Cassin Route (900 meters) of the Piz Badile by early afternoon. The abseils down the North Ridge would take up the rest of the day, hopefully we’d get most of the way down before we got caught in the rain, thunder and lightening.
