The Norris

Currently living and working in Manchester, and saving up for a long climbing trip in Europe next year. Not too bothered about pushing grades, I just enjoy getting out on good rock with nice people. I had a scary fall last year and hit the deck, and consequently I'm not as bold as i once was (not that i was very bold in the first place!). Plan for the year is to enoy the Lake district and North wales a bit more, as last year was all about the Grit.

Best Climbing Experience
Generally just playing about in Font. No particular climbs, just had a really great time with friends working out problems at the limits of our abilities.
