Pyrenean foothills, SW France

Best Climbing Experience
Before leaving the UK in 2002, I favored cragging in N Wales pushing the grades on Dinas Gromlech; Cenotaph Corner, Left Wall and finally Memory Lane. Apart from which, a few other scattered E3s. I still miss that region but I'm finding local favorites here: the granite of Dent d'Orlu, Cavallers, and Neouvielle.

Best experiences are usually the most recent - keep your escapism current!

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Climbing harder; what's the point? there's always another grade above and the human condition is never to be satisfied. But yes, I'd like to onsight 7a more frequently :-)
