Challenge, adventures and good laughs are what its all about!

Decent quote from the lad that is Ian Parnell:
“Much of contemporary life is passed as if we were automatons: our daily chores, our responsibilities, and our careers often seem beyond our direct control. Yet in climbing, we have to question every moment. Will that micro wire hold? What time will those dark clouds on the horizon reach the summit slopes? We control which climbs we choose to do, in what style we climb, and when we decide to give in or push on. Whilst our passion for climbing can isolate us from the price of our obsession, in making those critical decisions we truly experience what it means to lead an examined life far from the monotony of the everyday world.” – Ian Parnell

Best Climbing Experience
Throwing everything into the back of the car and spending a couple of days at a place I haven't been to, climbing whatever looks good from the ground. Curry and beers can very quickly become priority at the later stages of a good crag day!
