Climbing Cousins

I often 'forget' this because my dad is so modest, but my dad is some thing of an AMAZING climber. Amazing as in: writes books, in books, featured in climbing magazines, known in the climbing world etc. In fact, he, his brother, and his brother in law are all fantastic and renowned in the climbing world! Judging by these photos of Ben and his cousins (Ollie and Ted), there's some talented fresh blood in the family too! 

Bless them, they looked shattered after the lesson. They had a wonderful time at Climb Newcastle, the kids classes are really high-energy and engaging. Despite Ollie living in London, the two get on like a house on fire whenever they're together. Ben doesn't get to see them as often as he likes but, as with all of my cousins when I was younger, as soon as they see each other it's like they've never been apart.

It was lovely that Ollie and Ben were able to see so much of each other this half-term, he's already looking forward to the next time.x

  5. That is fabulous, teach them while they are young. I could never do that, I only have one fear and it's of heights. I don't even like to see someone climb a ladder.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your nice comment, I hope you have a great weekend!
