Colin Binks

Colin Binks - 13 times 5 years.

A selection of stuff for a man in his prime


Some buddies



Thanks to Rockfax for this one(c) CC




Classic Pose

(c) CC

Colin seen here about 40 seconds after arriving at the crag.

Tidy rack or what?





No detail missed



Pushing the partner.

Climbed up, small holds, getting smaller, gear in, close to limit, climb down. Look at Colin. He looks back. I gather myself and climb, up past the gear, out over the drop, up under the roof, flap in a wire, useless! Grab a cam, ram it in, clip it and breathe.
Unforgettable.



Renowned exponent of the "fine position".



In "gent" mode
(as always)



Trend setting, not sure where to!?



 Norm won't forget this one
More buddies








All the best Colin

Dog on the Tracks

Wednesday 19th January, drive out to meet with N,G and B over at the H and F.  Nine miles Threlkeld to Keswick and back via the old railway.



Cracking day out.

Boris keeps us on track





Moonrise over the Pennines



 and over the Thames, Vikki returns the compliment.

Wall Capers

Harrogate last week, Leeds today.

Our glorious leader Norm shows the way, on the sharp end - black holds over the overhang - can he make it?






Yes he can!





The G man follows suit in a fine position




Andy has a big finish
