I've been fighting gravity for over 40 years. Unlike me it doesn't seem to be tiring, getting older or prone to injury.
I'm still trying though!
Best Climbing Experience
There's lots, Baffin Island in 1975 was a spicy experience for a young Blakey, reaching flat ground after a slow ascent of the Muir Wall would be another. First trip to the Verdon in 1976 was pretty special, as was Tuolumne with my wife in 1997. I was lucky enough to live on the doorstep of the Cochise Stronghold in Arizona for 18 months - that was quite something. Nowadays I dig around in the County looking for (and finding) new venues and generally enjoy the company and crack of the squad on our Saturday sessions. A recent flying visit to Riglos paid dividends, ticking Biceps, which had long been a tick I wanted.

Anything Else We Should Know
It may not seem like it, but I don't take myself too seriously. Nor should anyone else.
