Torridon is situated in the North West of Scotland and is home to some of the best bouldering in Britain! This winter season we focused mainly on trying to climb the classics and a few harder problems and this is what happened...

They may have got the name wrong, but it has indeed taken an overseas visitor to complete a long-standing north Wales boulder project, known locally as the "Fred Nicole Roof'. The first ascent took German climbing prodigy, Alex Megos, two visits to the sea-side venue of Porth Ysgo on the Lleyn Peninsula.

DMM returned to the Frankenjura last year and met-up with many of the sponsored European climbing team. For some of them such as Tabea Schwab (Swiss), Alex Luger (Austria) and Andy Winterleitner (Swiss) this was their first visit to the region.

It's used on the Bavarian limestone crags to describe climbing an existing bolted route without clipping the bolts, simply relying on trad gear, such as nuts and cams, for protection.
