Climbing in Cornwall
Saturday, May 20, 2006


My forearms are still tender and my hands are still rough after a fun 2 weeks climbing in Cornwall and North Devon. Alun and I took the newly refurbished van on it's maiden voyage down south - and for the first time enjoyed the luxury of a bed, stove and cupboards! Thanks to the multi-skilled Barry ( who not only kayaked around Britain last year with Phil and Harry, but also did a great woodwork job on the van)!


Alun and I started in Baggy Point in North Devon and worked south down the coast all the way to Lands End. I haven't explored that area before and was impressed by the miles and miles of beautiful coastline. We did take sea kayaks with us but in the end they stayed on the van and we climbed 12 out of 13 days, with just one dip in the surf in our surf boats. The climbing was mostly on sea cliffs and we did some amazing routes such as Eroica and Mercury. The jagged fins of Sharpnose were also very impressive and a bit intimidating to start with. Right now I'm at Blenheim Palace near Oxford about to film the swimming leg of a triathalon from the front of a double seakayak!


This trip south marks the start of the holiday season for Alun and I with upcoming seakayaking trips to Jersey, Shetland and the Faroe Islands in the next 2 months. Well, I'll be filming of course, so that's officially work for me, but I don't expect much sympathy!

Hi Justine-
Any truth to the story that King Arthur has bought a seakayak and will paddle out of his dad's old place at Tintagel when he returns to save us all? If so, could you be there to film it? That'd be so swell...
