I've been climbing again for about three years (did a bit indoors when a teen). I'm enjoying getting outside but not getting there enough. I'm a pretty alright guy really erm.

Best Climbing Experience
My first E1, The Staff, I felt solid and secure. I have to put The Old Man of Hoy in here by the East Face Route; the Rock was horrible sandy stuff, a Fulmar vomitted on me and I was scared far more than any other E1 has scared me but to have done it is great.
I also really enjoyed climbing a Wye valley classic with the first ascentionist.
Just getting outside really is brilliant every time for me, of late I am enjoying finding that the upper limits that I used to think of are now where I operate and wonder if I can make my perceived limits my norm again?
