Training Day at The Depot

On Monday, we left the house early and set the course for Manchester. As some of you may already know, I am soon starting a job at The Depot bouldering centre that will be opening in Birmingham very soon, so on Monday we went to their Manchester branch to receive some training. I won’t bore you with the details of the safety training, however there two reasons I wanted to capture this experience. Continue reading “Training Day at The Depot”

Ready for this.

I have had a tough few weeks but here it is – my first blog entry.

The name reflects my passion for both, as well as many linked activities, such as aerial circus, slackline, hill walking and such like. I am also passionate about nutrition, and at some point I’d like to introduce a food section to this blog.

My partner and I go climbing outdoors when our schedule and the weather allows it, so for the most part this blog will be myself documenting our climbing adventures. I will also attempt to keep up to date with any workshops I attend, and share an occasional yoga sequence.
