I’m writing this on the plane somewhere between Cape Town and Singapore in a rare moment of peace while my daughter sleeps, spread across my lap. I’m squished into the side of the already cramped economy seat and my back aches, but I don’t know if it’s from the transit, the toddler wrangling or the heavy four-days-on of bouldering that we squeezed in at the end. There hasn’t been much down time, but since I have the chance, it feels right to reflect and share some of the experiences of my very first bouldering trip.
I’ve been trialling the new RAB Veil 6L Trail Running Vest over the past few months, and I have to say I am very impressed with it. Small enough to feel like an item of clothing rather than a backpack, but big enough to get you through most mandatory gear lists, or big days out in the mountains.
