Fattening up for Xmas

Good to see danny might be coming on line from hampi, lots of photos please mr conlon...... Here are a few photos from font Nov 05; a good trip i think (A team ascent of Gargantoit assis is due next time) we had favourable friction and there was wholehearted UK support for the french penchant of wearing socks inside the sticky rubber. ie it was colder than george best. Lots of good, and few bad, 7's were bagged and some better than good sarnies were crafted (the olive bread is worth the ticket alone, especially if you set fire to the train to earn a freebie). Looking back on this year, i have been to font 4 times (but still a punter)

The Swiss bouldering trip

Ok, so you'd think with a week in the bouldering heaven of Magic Wood, Cresciano and Chironico that the team would have come back with a comprehensive list of problems ticked off in their newly acquired guidebooks. The truth was a little different. Most of the week comprised of who could SEND the 7a+ sandwich problem. The problem being who could open their mouth wide enough to fit the damm thing in. (The muscle cramp in my jaw being testimony to this!)

However some climbing was done and here's a collection of the photos.
