Climbed in my youth in Yorkshire and the Peak District, some Wales, but somehow lost interest after 5 yrs.
From May 2016, climbing again after about 25 years break!
If viewing my hardest onsights / worked grades, bear in mind these are from about 25-30 yrs ago, i might hope to get near again at some point, but definitely not my current level! Please view my recently logged for that, = about 6b/+ onsight Bristol area (= 6a+ in Yorkshire?), vs / hvs.

Location
Somerset

Best Climbing Experience
Possibly Redpointing Sardine e5 6b / 7b+, but i can't remember it! Almost onsighting No Mans Land, 7b at Buoux, was more memorable, as i didn't have much run out falling experience, but took quite a whipper (for me anyway, probably quite common these days), and remember how hard i tried to get through before finally having to give in, fingers uncurling with no choice but to go flying when i really really didn't want to. Did the crux next go, don't think i redpointed it though... not sure as i still haven't found the guide book i had from 30yrs ago.
Oh, wait a minute, all alone + soloing WeeDoris at Stoney, e3 5c, after much practice, was very memorable, think I was in tears at the last bit, palms so sweaty + praying all sorts of stuff cos I was sure I was about to die finishing off with the polished mantleshelf...
