Male, caucasian, used to be dark-haired, married.
Used to have about 9" extra reach than anybody I climbed with, but not enough muscles to pull on the hold once I got it. Probably should regard myself as retired from climbing, but old loves die hard, and I think we're all secretly young-at-heart. No complaints! Happy with life!
Best Climbing Experience
Soloed Avalanche/Red Wall/Longlands continuation after work one summers evening, then over Snowdon and down to the Padarn before closing. (First time on Lliwedd.)

Anything Else We Should Know
Climbed for seven years, but not in the last twenty-five. Became Muslim twenty seven years ago in Turkey, while travelling round the world. That turned out to be my destination. Still feel like a "companion of the mountains" and enjoy a rough bit of weather now and then.
Perhaps I won't climb again, but... you never know!
