Follow Pete's journey from growing up in the Peak District to becoming (last November) the first person to make a one day, all-free solo of the 1,000m El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Stories revolve around ridiculous training regimes, tales of big wall toilets and a climber's attempt to step out of the comfort zone...

On 10 December, 7 of The Reach Youth Squad descended on Reading Climbing Wall to attend the first of three rounds of the elevate climbing series. There were 7 routes to have a go at ranging from 5 to 6c+. This was split into 4 top ropes and 3 leads.
Despite the routes being set for adults and the hardest two being too reach for little arms (especially the dyno for the final hold), our squad outperformed themselves and many managed to climb or have a good go at many of the routes. Well done all of you the results from this round should be put up soon!
A successful, productive and enjoyable day was had by all. We hope you will join us again for the next rounds and maybe we can get some greater numbers for the next date we are planning to attend.
