As you may know if you’re a regular reader, I started trad rock climbing in April with a crazy trip to Cornwall.  Trad climbing is where you place pieces of safety gear in the rock as you climb, versus top-roping (where a rope is suspended from the top). The hobby has taken me to Cornwall and Wales, but also to the Peak District three times, and after a rain-soaked weekend in Wales, I’ve decided the Peaks (which is closest to Cambridge) is my favorite.

I think its pretty obvious that there’s plenty to like about it.
