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. Slowing down a bit as other things get in the way. Over 10 years served as a member of Edale MRT, which makes life interesting, 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. The more specific climbing memories usually involve unexpected encounters with nature, from Basking sharks to Brocken spectres.
