After a break from climbing for a fair few years I'm back training and climbing and having a great time. Currently working in Cheltenham and managing to get out to the Wye Valley/Castle Rock a couple of evenings a week.

I've tried some of the solos down in the Forest of Dean and I'm now in the strange state of having my log book telling me that I've soloed harder climbs (E3 5b) than I've actually led! (E1 5b)

Oh .. and I really want to do more climbing on Grit, the footholds are such a revelation after the shiny limestone at Symonds :-)

Parle (5, 6a, 6a+) in the Pirates of the Caribbean sector (Toix, Costa Blanca) .. awesome route. Exposure is something else.
