Coasteering Excellence - Kernow Coasteering Certificate of Excellence Winner 2019


New rock climbing shoes!

I can't wait to give my new rock climbing shoes a test run. These are 5.10 Anasazi Verdis. I tried a friend's pair a coupl eof weeks ago, and new straight away I had to get some, after we climbed an E1 5b slab and Cribba Head, near Porthcurno.

Five Ten say of these shoes, "If you can see it, you can stand on it," meaning you can use the tiniest crystals protruding from the rock. I'm looking forward ot climbing some slabs with these bad boys, rest assured!

Kernow Climbing

We have launched intot the New Year with a new site to promote our rock climbing activities, so hop on over to Kernow Climbing to have a look. It looks pretty much the same at the moment, but over time the sites will diverge, with the climbing related stuff being found on the new site, and all things coasteering remaining here at Kernow Coasteering.

Kernow Coasteering in the Andes

Kernow Coasteering's Matt has had a busy winter so far. In between preparations for Kernow Coasteering's adventures for 2015, Matt flew out to Argentina on a three week trip to attempt to climb one of the 7 summits - Aconcagua. At 6962 metres above sea level, it is recognised as the highest mountain in South America. It is also the highest mountain outside of the Greater Himalayan range.


Thanks for a great Easter!

Thanks to all of you who we had the pleasure of taking coasteering during the Easter break. We had some good sessions - check out the video below (and more to come soon!). Also in other good news, we received our ammended AALA licence today, meaning we are know AALA licensed to do our rock climbing and abseiling activities, as well as coasteering. Now you've got even more reason to tie onto the end of a rope and climb some pristine granite with us!

Thank you for a great 2015!

Well it's that time of year again, so we're wishing you all and very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We've complied the very best moments of 2015 together to make the following video. It wasn't easy to come up with a 5 minute video - I started with 50 minutes of already edited video to cut down to size. I hope you made the cut! Enjoy the festive season, and we hope to see you again in 2016.
