I am a 35-year-old E6 climber trapped inside the body of a somewhat lesser and older performer. I am awaiting age-reassignment surgery on the NHS to match up body and mind. Given that rejuvenation is unlikely, I would guess this would involve sticking a needle in my brain and twirling it around a bit.
Best Climbing Experience
Mount Kenya; A weekend taking in Etive Slabs, Ledge Route and Ardverikie Wall; Chair Ladder - South Face Direct; SC Gully in April.
