I was out clipping bolts at Kirriemuir yesterday which felt like a shock to the system. The last time I was on rock was in Spain last October so the forearms certainly got a wake up call. We did a bunch of routes upto 6c including laps of routes to finish off the session with a burn. I like this time of year though as it means the Spring is upon us and its time to train like a daemon for the Summer trad season. If there is an area I am keen to improve on massively its on rock. After training and loosing so much weight last year and really seeing the improvements it can make this time round I am keen not to let it fall by the wayside over next winter. I wont be hanging up the ice tools just yet though as Ben Nevis is starting to look good for a bit of Spring ice climbing.
