Shambling and slightly bewildered, developing a worrisome resemblence to Martin Keown. Dedicated to the pursuit of a wide-ranging mediocrity. On occassion accidently epigrammatic. I like tea.

Ilkley Moor (baht 'at)

Best Climbing Experience
Summiting Tuolumne's golden granite domes in the setting sun with the prospect of a primus-stove cooked curry to celebrate. More commonplace, ticking-off a project early in a session: the sense that the journey was worth it, the pressure is now off, and any further success is a bonus.
