Long time no speak

Well, my climbing has been ticking along, but nothing major to report. Have done a load of fitness training down Longridge, and have ticked a handful of 8's dotted around, but now its time to get serious. Should have done Ecstasy today, at Kilnsey. Greased off right at the top in bad conditions. Pretty sure this 8b as per the guide and not the 8a+ a few people have mooted. Its taken me twice as long as my previous 8b's, and i think i am reasonably fit and strong at the moment.

Anyway. Now i have a plan of attack. It reads as follows.

Ecstasy - 8b
The Bulge - 8a
Urgent Action - 8a+
Full tilt - 8b
The Thumb - 8a
Dr Crimp - 8b+
Northern Exposure - 8b+

Add to that Supercool, when i get chance to get back on it. Also need to finish off Austrian Oak at Malham too.

I have 4 months.

Will update blog with a few pics over the next few days
