Recent news that the Cobra Crack was climbed by two British Climbers had me pull up the old video of Sonnie Trotter's first ascent of the infamous Cobra Crack. Classic video, with some very inspired climbing, check it out.

Cobra Crack is a 5.14 traditional crack climb in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada. Read here and here for further information about the region.

I notice time and again that most people either don’t spend enough time learning the basics around bouldering safety or are not taught this when they learn to climb.

On a recent trip I observed one person from another group fail on a rather patchy highball attempt and land hard on their crashpad. Bad spotting did not help, and the person managed to land on their back and took a knock. Suffice it to say he called it a day and probably suffered a splitting headache as a result.

A bit of physics helps explain why bouldering falls can be so dangerous. The key to understanding how much force is acting upon a fall is the braking distance.

Check out this video from Climbing.com with Chris Sharma and his latest routes in Spain. Catalunya is amazing for climbing, and I have such fond memories of the place. Adventure, good weather, tons and tons of routes... maybe it's time to go back on a holiday... or maybe it's just the snowy England winter blues making me feel nostalgic. Bring on some good weather and the next climbing season *disappears into climbing cellar*

I spent a couple of days in the Elbsandstone mountains checking out some of the bouldering venues. Mostly I was in the Bahratal which is located just South of Pirna, near the town of Berggießhübel. The area contains around 10 bouldering sectors, each with upwards of 30+ problems. All climbing here is on Sandstone boulders and walls. The forest is littered with a bizzare range of blocks in all shapes and sizes, and you'll have to apply a good variety of climbing styles.
