Covid19 Lockdown Training

It’d been a while since I was on here. Due to the Covid19 I’m homeschooling just now, but I try to get out and about as often as I can.

Recently I’ve been working on my new book. It’s a journal based on my recent trip to Egypt where I dived and did some marine life identification and research techniques. It’s an exciting project but has taken a while to put together.

I’ve also been hiking over the hills behind my house and developing my mountain walking skills.

Please stay safe and hopefully I’ll catch up with you all sooner rather later.

Winter Three Peaks – Snowdon

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve climbed Mt Snowdon a few times before today, all of them have been good ascents. I did a winter ascent in 2013 via the Llanberis path. This time, as part of the National Three Peaks, I decided with my dad to climb it via the Pyg Track, a shorter route, but harder and steeper.  Continue reading

My BBC Radio Wales Interview

This week the media has really got a hold of my adventures and are very keen to help me publicise them. As a result, not only have I been in several local papers and on their websites, but a national newspaper ran with the story of my three peaks challenge as well.

To top it all off though, Jason Phelps from the Jason Mohammad BBC Radio Wales show came out to my climbing club at Dynamic Rock today and interviewed me, as well as taking some pictures and I really enjoyed it.

Its been a really busy day what with having to do my school work, then grabbing a McDonalds on the way to climbing club, then being interviewed and having to think about good things to say (I’m much better at writing stuff or filming stuff with my dad). Then I went home, had to respond to some daily emails and I made two short videos for some of my supporters and sponsors, then I watched some Minecraft on Youtube and then went to bed exhausted, leaving my dad to publish my videos and this blog.

Thanks so much everyone, I really enjoy what I’m doing and I will keep doing my best for you my fans and supporters.
