Mat’s Goal #1 – F7a lead by Christmas 2011

I’m a believer in personal goals when it comes to climbing, and leading an F7a cleanly by Christmas 2011 is my current obsession motivation. I’m aiming to be climbing at least 3 times a week at present, mixing endurance circuits on easier ground with redpointing 6c – 7a climbs. I’ve been having a go at the occasional 7a for a while now – more outdoors than indoors, dogging my way up Resistance is Futile, F7a+ at Godnor Cliff, Portland, after much encouragement from Becky!

New shoes have also helped, more of those in a future post!
