Well I have been back from Frey for a while now. The climbing is totally world class, the rock solid and great for free climbing, despite the sandbagging grades, it is a spot that I cannot recommend highly enough. Just book a flight and take a sleeping bag and a rack, and stay in the amazing refugio, oh and climb till your fingers bleed.
I have been back at Base Camp completing endless evaluation sheets, giving feedback and winding up the course. I have one more debrief with the Bosses later today. After that I have a few days before I start my flights back. I can’t lie, at times the course has been hard, but I did come straight from a climbing holiday into a 6 week climbing course. My time has been enjoyable though, although I can’t wait to get back home and see my good friend, and share a well deserved pint in the Prince.
I feel l the girl in the Wizard of Oz, all I need is my ruby slippers. “There’s No Place Like Home, Theres No Place Like Home”, although writing it down like that I am reminded of the shining. “All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy,…………….”. So just be prepare Llanberis because here come Johnnie!
I have one more selection of picture to put up here. It was from the day after we left Frey. So I will try and get them online ASAP. Till then don’t have nightmares!
