Simon Ager

I Spend far too much time working and far too little climbing. Running The Pinnacle Climbinmg Centre in Northampton takes up about 23.5hrs a day.

Best Climbing Experience
Climbing a waterfall ice route in France, Fresienier valley, Grade 3/4. We were not on the route we had been told about but it was superb. Especially making my first Abolokov in anger on 80 degree ice, during a 7 pitch abseil. And so many others.

Favourite Climbs
Scavenger (VS 4b - Gower)
not a favourite
more of a nemesis - well within by grade but failed twice.
Rocky Mountain Way (E1
5b - Symonds Yat) Tried to climb Whitt (VS) but forgot the guidebook
only found out what I'd done later
quite a buzz.
The French ice route known to us as Fractosaurus III/3+
great fun
even if it did take us 8hrs inc. abolokov abseils
my first ever made in anger on the end of an abseil on 80 degree ice.
