Old Git. Climbing since 1966 I seem to remember. And done some routes in the intervening years.
Even climbed in lancashire.

Update as at 03/06/2013. I can be slightly insensitive of ignorant pillocks and those who appear to have absolutely no understanding of the history of climbing as she is practised in the UK nor the brilliance of Richard Thompson as the pre-eminent singer / songwriter in the world.

Best Climbing Experience
Taking new climbers on Symphony Crack
The perfect day that culminated in an on-sight solo of Archangel at Stanage
Ardverikie Wall solo under a big, big sky
Hanging on in on Septumania in the rainstorm and doing the top five pitches as the rock steamed
Gimmer in summer. Any summer

Probably should add Gogarth...though it's not Yorkshire by any stretch.
