Best Climbing Experience
Doorpost (HS 4a, 4b,4a) at Bosigran with my mate Nobby or having a near epic on the Right Angle with my wife Julia. Amazing positions above sea and great climbing. In the Alps doing the Cosmic Arete with the missus and Danny Mac, Royal Arches with Ginger George and a trip to Lundy.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Just reading how pompus and self absorbed people can be about climbing, quality.
