I started climbing in 1973 when I did just a handful of easy routes. I was recently out of action for three years after shoulder surgery and have just started climbing again with a few visits to the climbing wall. I hope to start real climbing this summer and hopefully get back to leading something half decent but to be honest it would be great to just get out and enjoy climbing again regardless of the grade.

Best Climbing Experience
Good question, probably too many to mention. Epic soloing days on the grit and my first visit to Buoux and Verdon in 1981 before they were very popular are both 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 although I am unable to lead the routes that I once could solo which is a bit sad.
