Hi, I'm more of a scrambler than a climber (but I have lead up to severe...can cope with most single pitch stuff to VS and who knows, I am trying to improve, really I am! Passed my Summer ML a few years back and now I am lucky enough to be able to use it to train around 40 youngsters (me along with some other really committed leaders) to take part in the annual Ten Tors event on Dartmoor each year. First climbed around 25 years ago on Outward Bound, doing more now than I have for a while. Finally finished the Wainwrights in 2011....but have taken so long that I have only 50 left to have done them a second time!

but oddly I do like granite...even though it takes your skin off...so probably something at Hound Tor or Bench Tor
