Paul Hy

It's now 3 years since i started climbing (1 May 2011) after knees couldn't take the pounding of squash and running any more.
Aim this year (2014) to get into the mountains and do loads of multi pitch, but to get the Sloth finally ticked off as well!
The Sloth done, right where's them there mountains?

Best Climbing Experience
2014: Onsighting, Gangur Groove at Willesley HVS 5b my best lead now.
Update: 11/7/13: did Chequers buttress at Froggatt yesterday. Now that is a classic!!!!
Gargoyle Flake at Bamford is the best VS i think, should get 4 stars!
My 1st HVS lead Bamford Rib HVS 5a at Bamford Edge.
My first rock climbing trip overseas to Spain in Oct 12 was superb.
Completing the trio of Sunset Slab, Chequers Buttress and Tody's, then TPS.
