Best Climbing Experience
I enjoy climbs that have something unusual about them, North Crag Eliminate on Castle Rock, E1, Pigotts Stride at Almsclif and The Crescent at Ravensheugh all stick in the memory for various reasons. Lots of long summer evenings at Goldsborough, Highcliffe Nab and the Wainstones are unforgettable.
