Industrial Chemist during the week and volunteer outdoor instructor at Longsleddale Outdoor Pursuits Centre at weekends.
Climb a couple of evenings a week. Not really pushing grades, just enjoying the routes like a true punter.
Best Climbing Experience Getting up Central Crack (Wilton Three) without taking a fall (3rd attempt) was good ... or maybe just more of a relief.
Really enjoyed doing a long multipitch route on Buckbarrow (Longsleddale) one sunny afternoon with no-one else but my wife in the valley. True peaceful climbing.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic Rack, rope and rock.
