23 years after first visiting Groningen, Alan James makes a return visit and discovers that the scrappy local wall he climbed on in the 1980s has been replaced by the World's tallest free-standing climbing wall.
On the visit in 1986 he says, "It was a curious feeling when compared to back in Sheffield where I was just another E3/4 leader amongst a lot of much better climbers; in Groningen I was suddenly a ground-breaking visionary first ascensionist!"
