I've been climbing for 3 years again after a 15 year lay off.
Keen to keep udging up the grades and hopefully this year will be climbing at the same level I did 15 years ago. Then again I said that last year.
Most at home in the hills but determinded to get the hang of grit. If I don't lead E1 on grit this year I'm giving up - again.
Best Climbing Experience
Long time ago now but O sole mio on the Grand Capucin was a nice day out.
Parallel gully B in deep snow (before it fell down) still lodged in the memory.
Enjoyed Kipling Groove after reading about it for 25 years.
