Read Macadam is a Canadian climber based in Oman. If anyone should know anything about climbing in hot conditions, then he's the man.
Foolishly, we all hiked up to Sarkit, the cliff directly beyond the world famous Jo.Si.To campsite, to bag a few routes. Sarkit is famous for being a sun trap, and in 35 degree heat, we all should have known better. After we had all climbed this one f7a route, we repacked our bags, tucked our tails between our legs and looked for the nearest shade.

An autumn afternoon in Fontainebleau.
On a short trip back in November 2014, we had woken to a morning that was much warmer than we had expected, although the sun was a welcome change after three successive days of rain.
We waited for the cooler temperatures of the late afternoon to climb and then, in the beautiful autumn light, bagged this shot on a classic font 7a at 95.2.

If you would have asked me before visiting ... I would have told you that the Grande Grotte had become one of the climbing photography worlds biggest cliches. However, after visiting, and after having my mind blown apart by the sheer scale and beauty of the place; well, I'm happy to jump on the band wagon. Incredible.

Iconic ascents like the one photographed here don't happen everyday ... otherwise they wouldn't be iconic.
Steve McClure bagged the first British onsight of the ultra-classic Ron Fawcett route Strawberries in September 2014, it was great to be able to capture a slice of the action.

After a long day of cragging on one of the many beautiful cliffs of Kalymnos there are many ways to spend the evening - starting with a cold beer and some beach time. But first, you have to traverse the stunning Mediterranean landscape one final time. Get walking ...
I was privileged to join a strong team of athletes from Marmot Europe in May 2015. Chasing them around the boulders of the Valdimasino, Val Di Mello and Val Di Bagni proved tough ... but it was also a hell of a lot of fun and we definitely got the shots.

I know that's what you're thinking. And I know that, because it's exactly what I thought ... and exactly what everyone I told about the trip thought. Why on earth would you want to go to Lebanon? Well, I think this photo goes some way to answering that question, don't you?
Climber: Tom Bolger | Crag: 'The Dripping Wall', Tannourine-El-Tahta | Route: Mr Manouche f8a+ FA
Charlie Woodburn and I hiked for almost three hours just to get to the base of this incredible wall ... lugging packs each in excess of 40kg, progress was slow and arduous.
When we arrived at the wall we dumped the gear and scrambled the last two hundred metres to the top of the cliff to drop in on the line so Charlie could check the gear.

Inspired by the efforts of none other than Magnus Midtbø, Ben West [pictured] got on the stunning "Los Kukos" to see how hard it really was.
Of course, he cruised the initial f7b section and stuck the first part of the f8c sequence with ease. After a couple of false-starts he then launched for the pocket and stuck the crux dyno ... held the swing and headed on to the easy ground to finish.
The project was on.

After a mammoth hike laden with heavy packs, we spent a short while sorting our gear below the wall we had come to check out. Charlie flaked the ropes, I stripped down the camera gear to a bare minimum.
We racked up, packed up and headed up the final 300 metre scramble to the top of the epic wall. Now we just needed to find a decent abseil point ...

The small white hut on the left, the Coruisk Memorial hut, was our base and home for the week we spent on Skye.
Cut off from all power, communications and civilisation but for the small tourist boat that visited the inlet when the weather allowed, we were as isolated as one really can be in todays world.
Look closely at the cliff face on the right hand side of the image and you will see Charlie Woodburn in a bright yellow jacket, soloing around, getting warm for an attempt at his new route, Tumble Holme.
Getting to the top is fun. Falling off from the top is more fun. Leah Crane getting some air time at Sector Odyssey, Kalymnos.

This shot was taken on my first trip away with Steve. We visited the MelloBlocco festival held in the Valdimasino, Terme di Bagni and Val Di Mello.
Bouldering with Steve is always an interesting experience. Especially when he says that he "isn't a boulderer", yet dispatches font 8a blocs on his first proper attempt.

Steve McClure in full control on one of the many stunning routes at another new sector developed on the Antalya region. Çitdibi is about 35 minutes drive from the already established area of Geyibayiri and is worth every minute of it.
