Male, caucasian, used to be dark-haired, married.
Used to have about 9" extra reach than anybody I climbed with, but not enough muscles to pull on the hold once I got it. Probably should regard myself as retired from climbing, but old loves die hard, and I think we're all secretly young-at-heart. No complaints! Happy with life!
Best Climbing Experience Soloed Avalanche/Red Wall/Longlands continuation after work one summers evening, then over Snowdon and down to the Padarn before closing. (First time on Lliwedd.)

Anything Else We Should Know Climbed for seven years, but not in the last forty. Became Muslim forty two years ago in Turkey, while travelling round the world. That turned out to be my destination. Still feel like a "companion of the mountains" and enjoy a bit of rough weather now and then.
As you can see, still drop in here from time to time!
Perhaps I won't climb again, but... you never know!
