The skiing is a bit boney at the moment.. We desperately need more snow in the alps but that being said its always worth going out and enjoying the good weather! Thanks to Ross Hewitt, Johnny Collinson and Griffin Post for a sweet day.
First up I’d like to apologise for my lack of blogging in the last few months.. I’ve been pretty busy and I’ve not really been doing any properly interesting days out in the mountains due to the lack of good conditions. I’ve been out loads though and Ive been enjoying training, climbing and skiing on my days off.
I’m trying my hand at vlogging. Check out the video bellow and let me know what you think in the comments section or share the video with a friend who you think might be interested. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel to see the next one! A great day out ski touring on a Chamonix Classic. We were pretty lucky with the conditions too!
Here a list of my 5 favorite pieces of gear from the summer so far. Things that have made my life easier, or more comfortable.
Petzl Sitta Harness
The Petzl Sitta has been a big surprise for me. Its super comfy, yet light weight and easy to pack in the rucksack. Enough gear loops for trad climbing and perfect for sport. It works for nearly all my climbing and I don’t need to worry about choosing the right harness for the job as I know it will work for me. Check it out on the EpicTV Shop here.
DMM Pivot Belay Device
It’s surprisingly hard to find the perfect belay plate but I’m pretty close with the DMM Pivot. Easy to use in guide mode and very smooth for giving out rope and abseiling. Great stuff from the welsh manufactures. Check it out here.
