A lovely paddle down a beautiful river to find 7 Kayak Capers caches, plus a Choppy Waters cache. One of the caches is very challenging!

A very tough one for me. I was by climbing myself, and had to repitch in the tree and then climb above the anchor point, both of which I find exceptionally difficult!

If anyone wonders why this cache is not "top of the charts" it is because it starts with one hand behind its back - with no container there are a bunch of points that no virtual cache can earn. But in every other respect ...

A tough cache, done on my 70th birthday in the company of my dearest friends 🙂.

One of the scariest tree climbs I've done, very high but also very open and exposed, nothing at all around you, which is the worst thing for my phobia.

A high climb, also technically difficult in terms of setting the rope. Very satisfying to finally complete this one.

Recognised the theme of the puzzle immediately, and knew exactly what I needed to do, though it remained a pain in the neck to actually DO it 😉.

And the final was a similar mix - a good climb in the middle of a sea of head high nettles!

An unusual setting in a lovely location. A challenge to get to the base of the tree, a challenge to get the line up and a challenge to make the climb!

At the time we did it, the line placement was very difficult - but the subsequent climb quite straightforward.

This award is really for a varied collection of free climbs at Canford Park of which "Free as a Bird" was the best (i.e. most scary) 🙂. I would have found them much easier using equipment, but the c/o was watching 🙂.

A tricky cache due to the overgrowth around the launch point and the profusion of tiny branches at the top that made it hard to get a line over a good size branch.

An interesting and original multi in Lyme Regis, a place both Mrs. A. and myself like very much, which brought back memories of holidays here when the children were young.
