Becky Lounds, the ‘Be in My Calendar’ Competition winner for Climbing:2013 headlines on the front cover climbing Pull My Daisy (E2 5c) as well as climbing German Schoolgirl (E2 5c) for March. Both are in the Rainbow Slab area in Llanberis slate quarries, Snowdonia.
As usual, Climbing 2013 features plenty of grit action with shots of the uber classic that is Eastwood Traverse, Brimstone at Millstone and Goliath at Burbage South. Limestone action isn’t ignored either – that would have been rude – so Raven Tor, Two Tier – Chee Dale and Kilnsey complete the role-call from the Pennines.
Further up north, as they say, the Lake District is well-represented with shots at Little Font in Kentmere and Bowderstone Crag.
Off the beaten track shots – as it were – come in from the Blueies (ie Blue Mountains) down-under in Oz, Dry-Tooling in North Wales and British Bouldering action from Cliffhanger.
