I started climbing in 1973 when I did a handful of routes. I have been out of action for three years after shoulder surgery and have just started again with a few visits to the climbing wall. I hope to start real climbing next spring and get back to leading something half decent!
Best Climbing Experience
Good question, too many to mention. Epic soloing days on the grit. My first visit to Buoux and Verdon in 1981 before they were very popular are very memorable. I have had great times climbing all over the UK and Europe including the Alps and sport climbing venues as well as good times climbing in the USA. I still love God's own rock, gritstone although I am unable to lead routes that I once could solo which is a bit sad.
