I love all kinds of climbing, but for me it's all about the adventure, going to new places, doing inspiring routes and also about the people you are with. I am trying to fit in as much as possible around having a five year old who has now started climbing himself, he says: "I prefer bouldering"...oh dear! But he has been getting up some great routes lately, if he can be persuaded!! Need to get fit again, work in the office is no good for you!!
