Wow well where do i begin !! Its been such a long time since i wrote on here but here goes. So Oct 2013 I went to Kalymnos for the North face festival. Me and Bruce had decided on the trip and headed over for two weeks, it was amazing! After a late arrival the next day we set off straight into the grotto to tick a bunch of the lines there we had set a challenge to onsight as many routes as possible, so with lots of the routes going down quickly in the cave such as Ivy (7b) Trella (7a) Tufantastic (7b+) all onsight I blasted up Priapos (7c) but fell on the last few bolts but what a route 3star. We entered the big marathon ticking the routes between 7a and 8a in which we came second so not to shabby :). After this we just racked up a mass of milage onsighting as much as possible, during my trip I managed a personal best with a 7c onsight at secret garden soft at the grade though and a massive day of routes ticked around 10 routes between 7a and 7c. But our trip had to come to an end and i can honestly say i cannot wait till i am next out there.
