When you are 20 years old, 30 is ancient.

A bit like Keith Sharples and Ben Moon.

Ben Moon quote
As it turned out it was probably the hardest thing I have ever done! It just seemed endless and although the final summit of Sgurr nan Gillean is pretty much in view all the time it never seems to get any closer."

I always thought bouldering was easy :-)
