Been climbing since 1967, I'm a slow developer. Still as keen as ever, though. .
I climb mainly with wife Ann.Generally prefer bouldering these days.
Best Climbing Experience
Four days dossing out at the Shelterstone in perfect weather. Did Needle, Steeple, Haystack & Pin. Does getting royally pissed in Aviemore afterwards count as a "climbing experience?"
Watching my partner float up Golden Slipper as her first Lakes HVS.
Finally taking a sufficiently deep breath and committing to Crescent Arete.
A wonderful day on Pillar doing Thanatos/Electron.
Warm summer days at Reiff.
Evening Wings,Venom Boulders,Skye.On a cool October afternoon with the Cuillin as backdrop.Rocking up,every muscle screaming and feeling my weight come onto my....left.....foot.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Anything that doesn't involve TPS. And top roping isn't climbing, it's exercise. :-)
