Up to far too many other things other than climbing, like commuting to London to commute and swap swaps. I don't boulder, but I sometimes waste a lot of time fiddling in nuts instead of doing moves - Trad Climbing I think its called. I am recovering from a second shoulder operation at the moment, but getting there and have moved back to South Wales to avoid having to make excuses for having no interest in climbing on gritstone.
Best Climbing Experience
Most things done at Ogmore, especially hanging out in the middle of nowhere on things like Phaser, Burn 'Em Up, The Uncanny etc. They'd been even better if they were stapled up....
