So now that I have committed to doing this I know need to go about planning how I can achieve it. Fortunately I do like planning and those of you who know me will be pleased to know I have a good spreadsheet on the go already. I have decided the order in which I am going to visit the different climbing areas and roughly when I am going to be there. Below is my approximate timetable.

I have recently moved to Bristol for work for a few months, which will take me right up to the time when I will start in the middle of May. I am hoping that this is going to be a very productive few months to get some good training done so I don’t burn out within the first week!
