Fat and unhealthy, equally ill at ease caving or climbing.
I did some top roping at the Wiltons when I was at school 20 odd years ago. Started wall climbing in November 2008. Not that much of a gap. Now happy trad leading VDiff and following HS. Indoors leading at 6a, Top roping at 6b. On slabs that is. Vertical is a bit lower. I hate overhangs.
Broke my ankle falling off Evening Ridge at Hobson Moor Quarry in June 2010. Good result for my first ever leader fall.
