Best Climbing Experience
Since the beginning of 2013 I have been on a great adventure predominantly working with a CC guidebook team on a new Mid Wales guide. As my local Ceredigion coast has been pretty much devoid of any climbing, we have been developing numerous crags. Some have been added here on UKC and others are yet to be added. A great experience exploring the coast line, finding virgin rock, dealing will raging seas and freezing winter temps, and all with a great little team. Currently, I have tallied up somewhere in the region of 150+ new routes and boulder problems here on the coast and elsewhere in Mid Wales.
