I have climbed on and off since 1982. Love bouldering particularly on the grit and scottish granite, schist and gneiss boulders :)

Got back into climbing after a 10 year lay off and it was shocking how much strength you lose! Now climbing harder on boulders than I ever did when the fingers aren't tweaky...

Best Climbing Experience
Fontainbleau - pissing up a jamming crack at Bas Cuvier to spontaneous applause from the french as they usually layback the thing :)
Trad - topping out on Darius back in the day, or following Silent Spring
Bouldering - Doing my first official Peak V4 6b at age 46!
