Strong man Richard Simpson is back!

After a period of lack of motivation after getting Action Directe, 9a, Richard started trining again!

It took Richard (MoonClimbing.com team) just a month and a half of training in order to send the classic Born 4 U, 8c, in Frankenjura (Germany).
Richard declared:
"Burn 4 U took 4 tries one morning this year (although I'd already spent two days on the climb in 2005). I'd been climbing again for about 6 weeks beforehand, mainly at Warwick climbing wall with a good friend Chris Lancaster."

The highlight of Richard's ascents are, among the others, Action Directe (9a), Hubble (8c+) and A Muerte (9a).

During his period of "reflection" Richard dedicated himself to boxing and running + University study.

It seems that motivation is back now. But Richard pointed out that among his climbing goals, he wants to try to run next New York marathon (November 2008) in than 2h 30min!

Watch out this man guys!
