crombie

Climbing irregularly indoors since 2005 but since the end of 2007 have climbed outdoors once or twice most weeks. Was leading regularly up to HS/easy-VS but took a nasty fall April 2009 and have missed most of the season. Back seconding up to VS but my lead-head seems to have deserted me for the time being.
2010 : Wrist seems to be back up to strength and started leading again, repeating previous climbs in the lower grades and working back up to Severe/HS, VS maybe some time off yet.
2010 : New baby arrives and no time for climbing :(
2011 : A good year, 220+ routes done, climbing bum for 4 months

Just being out and with friends, completely losing track of time and climbing until the light is fading into darkness
