My British Vacation

OK, it would be wrong to say I've been away for nearly six weeks, the time since my last post. The Mountain World just needed a little vacation, in order for some real (read: paying) work to get done. But I did go away for two weeks to the United Kingdom, a trip noteworthy for the quantity of sunshine (high) and the ratio of fun per climb (extremely high). We got tanner in Great Britain than we were at home in Colorado, and we managed eight days of climbing during a two-week trip (certainly an all-time high for me in Britain). We climbed only 19 pitches during that time—an average of less than two and a half pitches per day—but each day still seemed action-packed. Climbing in Britain is like that, especially on the sea cliffs where we spent most of our time. Over the next few days, I'll try to post a few reports.
