Beasties Go Up In The World!

Climber Beastie by CrawCrafts Beasties

A few weeks ago, I got a message from a fellow Beastie enthusiast asking if Explorer Beastie would like to join him for a few days of rock-climbing fun in Les Calanques in the south of France. I thought Explorer Beastie would jump at the chance, but it seems he has somewhat lost his head for heights since his trip to Lanzarote last year…
Tumble in the Lava - Oooops.

The opportunity was too good to pass up, so it was lucky that Climber Beastie showed up! In fairness, he is much better prepared for the challenges of scaling vertical rock faces. He arrived wearing a cosy fleece top…

He’s also got a nice roomy backpack to keep all his gear in!

Once he’d checked all his equipment, it was time for him to set off on the first leg of his journey…

…Although he did soon find a more comfortable way to travel.

And having successfully made it to his destination, he’s ready to start scrambling up some cliffs! It looks like he’s got his work cut out for him…

Will he make it to the top? You’ll have to wait until the next post to find out!

  1. I am agog for further information…He is well kitted out but those cliffs look pretty tough. Do let us know if he makes it and I hope he has a headtorch in his pack in case he gets benighted.

    1. I know! The things Explorer Beastie puts up with to entertain my blog readers… But Climber Beastie has done so well on his first outing! Keep an eye out for part 2, which has all the best action photos πŸ™‚
