A Few Climbing Pictures

UNDERSTATEMENT ALERT: Bristol Senior Sales Assistant Tom is a passionate climber.

If he’s not climbing you’ll find him in store talking about about some E6 HVS with all kinds chocks, crimpers and coldshuts (or something).

He’s had his picture featured in Climb Magazine and if he’s not in store talking about climbing he’s… climbing!* In his time off you’ll often find him out and about on the crags of the South West, and beyond.
Recently Tom took a trip to the Peak District to take in the great climbing on offer at Hen Cloud and The Roaches. He’s given me some pictures to share with you guys from a route he tackled on Hen Cloud, known as ‘Delstree’ – you can read about the route at UKC. The route is rated HVS 5a (that’s right, isn’t it?)
Take a look at a few snaps of his ascent:
‘Delstree’ is a popular route for many climbers across the country.

This shot from afar gives an idea of the scale of the crag.

Stay tuned for more pictures from our staff out and about making the most of the outdoors.

*Sorry Tom, I’m sure you do lots of other things away from climbing, but we’re trying to show the people your passion, right?

  1. Hi 'Anonymous', I would disagree. I'm not a climber myself and I don't claim to have the most in-depth knowledge of the subject. This is what I was alluding to in the light hearted writing style of this blog post.However, if you ever get the opportunity, speak to any of the several climbers who work for the company and you'll soon see that they an extremely passionate, knowledgeable bunch!We've shared these pictures of Tom out climbing because we'd like people out there to see the love our staff have for the outdoors. I hope you enjoyed them, nevertheless. Regards, LukeTaunton Leisure Online.
