Kick off your weekend with UK climber, Natalie Berry, as she gives us a glimpse into the unique bouldering of Hepburn, Northumberland —an area located in the northernmost part of England. Despite its vividly harsh conditions and palpably dreary environment, this remote climbing destination offers a unique style of rock and scenery that make it a strangely alluring place to experience …

Northumberland is quite bleak, quite dark a lot of the time. It can look quite foreboding, really. It’s like dark rain clouds and lots of wind. It’s kind of part of the fun of it … you have put up with put up with poor conditions sometimes … but it’s worth it.
