formerly blanchie14c, change of name after getting wed. The wife now wears my trousers, true story...
Middle aged climber, 'Gritstoner', likes the odd pint(!) Will camp/doss to ensure a full day out! Easily lead into daft projects!

Blackpool Best Climbing Experience
High Tor on a sunny sunday years ago, Exposure and spectators (Original Route, then VS, now HVS?)
Helicopter hovering below me on Cloggy - falling not an option. Soloing Great End, Central Gully under a full moon on perfect neve, finally climbing The Bat in Dovedale, first E1, first Grade V, Cuillin ridge, Matterhorn - so many experiences its hard to commit to just one

Anything Else We Should Know
Have transport, keen as ever but shift work means I can't get out as much as I'd like.
