This shot was actually taken by my mum about 6 months ago on a weekend when we got back from a lil sketchy climbing trip, just to catch up. I think she’s a better photographer than any of us here! 

The climb is Staffordshire Flyer V4/6B up at Doxy’s pool in the roaches. Really good classic line, leading out to the face with a dyno and cool finishing move. Due to the position of an awkward puddle it lead for my mum to keep laughing at me doing my best ape walk impression while I tried to avoid getting wet feet.
