Jon Stewart

Love UK trad climbing. Spring in the Highlands and Hebrides, Summer in Pembroke and Cornwall, Winter days on grit highballs.

Low E-grade plodder, motivated by quality routes and intense experiences rather than difficulty, improvement or achievement. Can't be arsed with falling off the same holds over and over again, so will never make a sport climber or boulderer. Not into "sending", nor "crushing".

Best Climbing Experience
Waking up on another sunny day on Mingulay with the ab in place and all the gear at the crag.

Mile after mile of sunny granite slabs on the Aiguille Dibona.

The fall from the non-top of Big Greeny.

Countless hours spent soloing on Stanage. Those routes get better the more you do them.

Steak pie and bitter in The Grouse.

Why grades are all meaningless and subjective, but even so, how my opinion on them is still objectively correct.

Why Horseshoe Quarry should be filled in.
