Started out as trad climbing on Northumbrian sandstone. Currently focussing mostly on sport in an attempt to get as fit as I can before I'm totally past it. Then I'll go back to bumbling around on trad.

Best Climbing Experience
Getting benighted for the night a third of the way up 20 foot crack.

Not sure about 'best', but climbing at Bowden Doors at the start of the first Iraq war was interesting. Often used to have (maybe still have) the odd RAF fighter aircraft zooming around the valley just to the South. On this occasion there was around 20 of them practising their dog-fighting skills, which was quite something.
