Peak District and London
Best Climbing Experience
Difficult to say, too many of them and they keep coming, which is good. I find the wilder locations with some camping the most enjoyable.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Anything remote and off the beaten track in the mountains.
Desert climbing areas, Mali, Morocco, Algeria, Jordan, Egypt.
