That was lovely; thanks.

Ha, nice one. I've had an ineffective paw at Whiteout Roof, I'll have another go now. The Coil is already on the list (first revisit to Farleton in 20+ years). Quick before I'm another year older! I've got a few multi-year projects and the danger is you expect to fail. Because that's what you always did. Longest siege was I think 8 Bloody Years.

what a great article, really articulates some of the joys, highs (and lows) of climbing. Really resonated with me.

cheers, we need to kind of accept the lows, as they're part of the high..inextricably linked. Fail to succeed. A great quote from Leo Houlding recently..'if it was easy, it wouldn't be hard'. Love that....

Took me so long to do Whiteout Roof...managed to get slightly closer, each year, until finally getting that pocket (albeit tiny). The Coil was really hard. I like crimps, but they were microcrimps...painful!!! Love the rock at Newbiggin and Farleton though..!
