Bouldering with Ross

Today I had a session with my mentor Ross Kirkland at Ratho. Alexander was climbing too and we did lots of hard boulders. Last week, when I was climbing with my coach Robbie, I did my first V7 (orange, in the boulder room) - so I was really pleased to show this to Ross!

Alexander wanted to try the speed wall so we finished our session with this. Alexander was delighted to break his 20 second barrier with an 18.5 second climb. I had a turn next and managed to knock 1 second off my personal best with a 22.9 second climb. It was a great session and it was good fun to be back climbing again with Ross.
