Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

At the end of May for the last few years, a small gathering of climbers have descended on the seaside cliffs of Fair Head in the north-eastern corner of Northern Ireland.  It is believed to be the biggest expanse of climbable rock in either Ireland or Britain.  Here's some highlights from last year's meet.

Next up, Shauna Coxsey and her boyfriend Ned Feehally show us what it's all about with the variety of climbing in the Peak District of Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.  You can walk to world class boulder problems just minutes from the road, or hike into serene forests for other challenges.

Every climber seems to know one, the guy or gal who is living out of their car, roaming from crag to crag as the seasons change, who maybe went just a little too long since their last shower, who can create a feast with a Coleman stove, and in the end, who is out there crushing.  Yes, they are the dirtbags.  Our last video this week explores this strange, yet dying breed.

Have a great weekend! - James

Great videos, but the 'Peak District of Snowdonia National Park' doesn't exist: the Peak District and Snowdonia National Park are entirely different places. The location shown is Snowdonia National Park.36
