Managing a steady decline with as much decorum as possible! Best onsights for trad & sport, are the best achieved at my peak and not current form, though I keep trying!
It is all about the adventure, so I am more into winter and Alpine at the moment.

Best Climbing Experience
Lundy 2010 has to come close, a sunny bank holiday week with the Devil's Slide to ourselves.
Climbing Swastika with my Dad,Snowdon Horseshoe with my son and Sa Gubia Normale with my wife are all stand out moments, that I will treasure.
