I Spend far too much time working and far too little climbing. Running The Pinnacle Climbinmg Centre in Northampton takes up about 23.5hrs a day.
Best Climbing Experience
Climbing a waterfall ice route in France, Fresienier valley, Grade 3/4. We were not on the route we had been told about but it was superb. Especially making my first Abolokov in anger on 80 degree ice, during a 7 pitch abseil. And so many others.
