Back into climbing after quarter of a century away. Started in the 80s in my teens, gave it all up by the time I turned 20. Used to run a rope-access company. Now in a middle place in life, and enjoying that game of roulette with the aging/injury process. But there is nothing so good as a day spent beneath the Fort of God. Sheffield/Cotswolds (Life/Children).
Best Climbing Experience
Grooved Arete in winter conditions with no winter gear; Mam Tor Gully after two weeks of rain; Font in summer '88; camping and climbing at the top of Glen Torridon in February.
And recently, Gogarth for the first time, although it frightened me to bits, and of course all the delights of the Burbage Valley.
Interests Outside Climbing
Writing, painting, violin, sybariticism.
