Was climbing for twenty years or so and had a break.
Recently had the urge to pick it up again.
Retired early so I now have lots of time midweek.
Married, live near Dudley.
Used to lead up to VS4c but having been out a few times find that I'm now happy with lower grades. Can lead to VD at the moment but am happy to second slightly harder. Grade chasing is no longer an issue just halcyon days out climbing.
Have all gear.
