Travel Chaos & Registering To Vote

19 Apr 2010 12:25

Soooooo many things to write about today

Registering to Vote:
With the General & Local Elections coming up on May 6th we are encouraging ALL our customers to vote. We don't care who you vote for or even if you spoil your vote but on May 6th, make the short trip to your local polling station and make your vote count.
If you're not registered to vote (or are unsure) TOMORROW is the deadline to register. To register to vote, all you need to do is fill in the electoral registration form and post it TODAY to your local registration office. It will take 5mins and is EASY to do. We in the UK are very lucky to be able to have a say in who runs our country and local councils, make your vote count.

News from The Climbing Works:
The volcano eruption is affecting millions of people around Europe and we in The Climbing Works are no exception. Percy is currently 'stranded' in Portugal with his family.... along with Andy Earl and Springer Graham from Climb Newcastle. I'm sure they are just distraught at having to stay in warm, sunny Portugal, discovering and opening up new problems in Sintra.

Others stranded by the Volcano include David Lama & Magnus Mitboe from the Mammut Pro Team. They've been having an extended trip (with beautiful weather) on the Gritstone. Notable ascents include Masters Edge, Parthian Shot, Simba's Pride & Messiah (they've done alot more too). David is currently seeing if he can get home via train while Magnus plays the waiting game as he is trying to get back to the U.S.

Back here in The Works we have set a new 40 problem black circuit that sits in the 5+ to 6a+ range. The complete topo is on the website here to download as a pdf.

Those who look closely will see that there is no White circuit. That is because Sam is currently stripping it now ready for a reset by the end of the week. It will sit in the medium c.Font 5+ range...probably.
