Not as beaten up as I'd feared.

Weather iffy so climbing postponed. Good.

Starting to pack up & clear flat now....

Sunday May 9 #

12 PM

Orienteering race 59:08 [5] 9.99 km (5:55 / km) +170m 5:27 / km
shoes: Innov8 MudClaw 300 2019

SLOW's OK Nuts trophy , Short brown (M45/M50), Winterfold & Pitch Hill (as Harvester 2014). 8km / 310m or was it more ? Or less? no idea.

Good strong run despite sluggish early on ( very poor night last night). Briefly "lost" en route to no 2 (long leg), but otherwise no errors , slight wobble at no 10 as Charles B-Gardner seemed to take a crazy west turn out of no 9, - he was wrong, but I lost ~30secs convincing myself I was right .

14-finish (map turnover) I really went flat out, as i'd decided to try to get under 60, which I managed. Treated this as a middle "race" within a race.

2nd on course behind Megan (3 mins down?), first in all others (M18, M45, M50). Jules strong on Brown though.......

Nigel B made howling errors in the easy section at the end - but i was already ahead, and my last km took me 4:20......... revenge for Devils punchbowl, 2018 where he took the title & the Southern champs from me.

12 PM

Running (Time trial) 22:49 [3] 5.02 km (4:33 / km) +20m 4:27 / km
shoes: Brooks Ravenna 11

Sian's latest paced 5k attempt, but brought fwd due to crap forecast tomorrow. She'd been swimming earlier, which didn't bode well .

on the long uphill drag, there was a nasty headwind, & pace dropped badly.

By 2km she was on the ropes (4:20 first km), and tho we were on target at halfway (11:00), it was game over, she finished in just under 23mins. 4 years ago I paced her to 21:35 on same course, so somewhat disappointing.

plus WU & WD & we'll try again in a fortnight. Nice to get out tho

Climbing (Trad) 1:00:00 [3]

Big trad climbing afternoon in Avon with Dom, an E1 eliminate, which had a savage early crux (nearly came off), but was eventually fab. Also a repeat of Malbogies, the most famous route here. Not easy, and Dom had a big problem on the crux pitch resulting in me losing a wire runner. Oh well! All was fine by the time it was dark & we were in a pub yard. Pub three evenings in a row now - and two pubs last sunday - not bad!

Really need a break from this mind. Scotland beckons.

Climbing (Trad) 45:00 [3]

Trad climbing, at the extreme end, Uphill Quarry, with Scared Dave

My last chance to climb (on lead) the E3 we did end March (in colder , windier conditions)

Dave rigged it & went up chalking holds & shouting advice, then i pulled the rope & tied on.

There was no decent gear for over 12m, and when falling was 100% NOT an option, and i started to get scared, a handhold broke and I could have decked .... but i stayed on. Dave's face.............. he was v scared so think how I felt.

Somehow i managed the next two moves to a crack where i was able to stuff in not four but SIX pieces of protection, as the hardest climbing was still above me.

I was fine, I just cranked but the top, I was almots unable to move.

This, guys, is as far as we go with this game. Back to easier routes now please - or ones with bolts. I've done two E2s & an E3, and that's my season.

I've facebooked it & here is a pic of the crux - the lucky chap has ropes ABOVE him - I didnt'. https://www.ukclimbing.com/photos/dbpage.php?id=21...
