Climbing winter routes in the UK has given me some of my most memorable and enjoyable days out climbing, however being based in London means I like to make sure that routes are ‘in’ before I make the long and expensive drive north. Fortunately in recent years this has become a lot easier because of the great resources available on the internet. I have put together some of those resources that I have found to be invaluable.
Last weekend I had the chance to attend the BMC Injury Prevention Symposium in Sheffield. Both Saturday and Sunday were packed with interesting lectures that gave us an overview of the different types of injuries that are common to climbers. We even had the chance to go for a little boulder in The Edge with the mighty Steve McClure.
