Best Climbing Experience
Bank Holiday in the Peaks where I lead almost nothing but HVS. Notable highlights were Great North Road, Toady's Wall and Valkyrie. Then I just got over excited and had a go at 3 Pebble Slab .. but had to be rescued. So near and yet so far.

Take as many shots as possible - law of averages means there's always a couple of good ones worth saving.

Richard was asked to lead Goliath's Groove by bridgeing only to prove that it could be done. He wasn't very happy.
