/ New David Craig article: At the Corrie of the Black Raven
"My first rock-climb was on my 20th birthday, October 7 1952. My last was on May 19 2011, when I was 78 - although I'd had a gap (to put it mildly) from 1952 to 1973. I know I won't climb again and I'm not being all stoical or mellow about it. Really, inwardly, I'm groaning and keening as all that long experience of effort and delight has reached its terminus at last."
Lovely. Go hard while you can, as they say.
Wonder what's happened to Jonno? He doesn't seem to post much any more.
