Mountaineer rather than just a rock junky, came back to climbing after a 12 year break in 2001, not aiming to break any records now (was I ever?).
Increasingly a walker and trail/ultra runner, not as good for gear discussions, but debate of the scientific aspects of training and performance is a good replacement
Best Climbing Experience
Clac Glas/Blaven traverse on Skye or possibly Les Courtes - French Alps. Being chased off Pigne d'Arolla by a thunder storm (afterwards!)
3 days doing the Italian Haute Route in ideal conditions and whilst fit enough to enjoy it!
Great climbing days with the Cambridge mob
Dent Blanche was pretty good also.
