"We'd crank limestone classics in the morning on superb crags like High Tor then spend long summer evenings soloing across the gritstone edges of Stanage, Curbar and Burbage south." - the epitome of the halcyon days of many a climber's life!
In reply to AP Melbourne: I have just emptied my loft due to moving house. I rediscovered Kim's UK guide books that he left with me back in the 80's. He did ask me to post them to him but as I'd just got married and couldn't afford the postage so I sort of forgot about it.

Hi Andy, I'm now 70 years of age so you've a bit to go yet, are you still "at it", you are right Dave Roberts freed Nexus direct finish before
Physic so the guy could climb at the highest level. I'll contact Dave Lyons to get his e-mail so you could contact him, is that OK for you, Dave
