Been climbing since 1967, I'm a slow developer. Still as keen as ever, though. .
I climb mainly with wife Ann.Generally prefer bouldering these days.

Best Climbing Experience
Four days dossing out at the Shelterstone in perfect weather. Did Needle, Steeple, Haystack & Pin. Does getting royally pissed in Aviemore afterwards count as a "climbing experience?"

Watching my partner float up Golden Slipper as her first Lakes HVS.

Finally taking a sufficiently deep breath and committing to Crescent Arete.

A wonderful day on Pillar doing Thanatos/Electron.

Warm summer days at Reiff.

Evening Wings,Venom Boulders,Skye.On a cool October afternoon with the Cuillin as backdrop.Rocking up,every muscle screaming and feeling my weight come onto my....left.....foot.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Anything that doesn't involve TPS. And top roping isn't climbing, it's exercise. :-)
