21/09/2015 - First taste of the Dolomites - Allegedly one of the best trad-climbing venues in Europe. A meet by Bowline Climbing Club was held there in the end of this summer. I had a chance to participate in it for a few days, then further climbed on after the meet, with another visiting friend of mine...

23/08/2015 - Zoë Procter’s Paddy Buckley round - This was my second attempt at the Paddy Buckley round, having aborted half way round five weeks prior due to really bad weather, and I wanted to give it one last go this summer while I was still fit and psyched. The route is 62 miles over 47 peaks in Snowdonia, North Wales...

19/07/2015 - Little adventures in climbing by Andy Potter - Well this weekend I was expecting to write an article regailing my climbing exploits in North Wales. And as it turns out going to North Wales would have been a good choice after all, at least in terms of weather. However the great british weather did a double u-turn...

28/04/2015 - Spring Bouldering Competition 2015 by Andy PotterOur first Spring Bouldering Competition was held at The Climbing Station on Tuesday 14th April. This was an open event for club members and non-members. We were thrilled to get turn-out of nearly 30 competitors, half of which were non-members...

10/04/2015 - Verdon Dreaming by Loz - For those who know me well it comes as no surprise that I don't really like grit. Yes, I've had some great days in the Peak, Millstone, Curbar (predictably Peapod), and playing around on, or should that be in, Goliath's Groove, and getting to the top of The File, but I think it's completely over-rated...

08/10/2014 - Craig Harwood (1961-2014) A Tribute by Miles Hillmann - Craig Harwood was killed in a leader fall from a climb (Caravanserai)  at Compass Point, North Devon on 4th September 2014.  Much of his early climbing and running from the mid 1980s through to his leaving the area to live in Cheshire in 2001 was as a Bowline member...

06/03/2014 - Winter meet 2014 report by Zoe Proctor - After the last two year's over-subscribed winter meets we were surprised to not fill the meet and with a few last-minute cancellations 12 of us arrived in dribs and drabs in North Ballachulish at the Alex Macintyre hut near Glencoe to test ourselves in the stormy weather that was hitting the UK...

15/01/2014 - Climbing, Casinos and Celanques by Andy Potter - OK so I only saw the Casinos in Monte Carlo, I didn't actual go inside (not being the gambling type). But two out of three isn’t bad and it made for a good title. Before I share with you the tale of my New Year holiday, I would like to start with the most important part...
