Day 21

Dry rock makes for dry smiles. I waited around until 3pm today hoping that the wind would keep blowing and drying all that wonderful sandstone. I drove out to Cuvier because I figured Rempart would be dry and there is so much quality up there…

Day 16, 17, 18

Bad weather makes for bad conditions, which makes for bad climbing, which makes for bad blogging. This is why I have been too lazy to update. I apologise that I have taken out my rage by denying you, the reader, these short, sweet, humourous, and…

Day 1

Although I arrived a couple of days ago, today was the first day that the sky wasn’t grey and the clouds releasing their goods. Woke up to a blue sky but rather warm conditions, which is good when you want blocs to dry. I spent…
