Got late into climbing when my physio encouraged me to climb to help my bad back - best medical advice I've ever had!
Best Climbing Experience
So many to choose from! -- Sailing out to and getting onto the Maidens at Whiten Head -- A quiet day on the Matterhorn -- Being the only group of climbers on Lundy for a week with laughter all the way -- Winter new-routing in NW Scotland with an after-dark walk out -- 3 days doing the Grand Arabesque -- A magic weekend on Arran -- A superb multipitch alongside a spectacular waterfall in the Ecrins -- An early morning outing up Kinder Downfall in full ice condition -- an uncrowded August bankholiday in Pembroke...
and last but not least, belaying atop gritstone edges, especially at sunset.

Anything with good rock (or ice)
good views and good company.
Just love big multi-pitch routes
especially seastacks and cliffs.
