Lardy punter who tries hard to be a prolific lardy punter. I don't climb hard, never did and never will but insist on having fun. I'm a bit OCD with my ticking and am trying to work my way through lots of lists and have a long term plan to tick the Peak upto HVS. A member of Edale MRT, which makes life interesting and unpredictable and leaves me with no illusions about what a bad gravity day will do to your innards. Day job for an oil company.

Best Climbing Experience
Letting go of the idea that it was all about getting better. Then letting go of the idea that it was about doing everything.
