Currently climbing at the Foundry and started to try bouldering at the climbing works. I find that I am consistant at 6a indoors lead climbing and 6b is my limit at the moment (2016).
I have a few people to climb with so my climbing is more regular than irregular, currently leading VS with the occasional HVS & E1 where the climbing style suits.
I have been to the Alps in 2011 for 2 week trip doing trekking peaks (PD/PD+) and travelled to Ecuador in 2012 to do some trekking peaks (Cotopaxi & Cayambe etc). I've done nothing technical thus far, but would love to try some technical climbs at lower elevation. I've had a few weeks climbing scottish winter and enjoyed it lots!
Back to the alps in 2015, climbing up to AD+ and D- on alpine rock routes
Currently returning from a shoulder injury. Getting my strength back gradually.
Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Best Climbing Experience
My first E1 (Long Tall Sally), Gogarth climbing with PYB was an experience. As was climbing in the Alps. It's all an experience isn't it?!
