It's now 5 years since i started climbing (1 May 2011) after knees couldn't take the pounding of squash and running any more.
Aim this year (2016) to get into the mountains more and do some Sea cliffs.
Best Climbing Experience
2014: Onsighting, Gangur Groove at Willesley HVS 5b one of my fav leads 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.
