Just moved back to Leeds after 4 years in the rock wilderness that is Birmingham.
can second to about VS but not really into leading atm.
Love to give new stuff a ago, tried alpine, winter, sea cliffs, multi-pitch,grit.
Hope to perfect the multipitch/alpine/winter this year and be able to lead some really nice classics sometime soon.
Started climbing again now and seconded VS.
Looking to get into bouldering/Off road running too and get nice and strong/fit ready for the winter
Best Climbing Experience I nearly always say the last climb was the best, just as I'm finishing it, but here are my fave moments so far...
I particularly enjoyed Christmas Curry at Tremadog, a beautiful day and stunning views.
A really nice day at Porth Clais in Pembroke too, sun shining and a few nice climbs too
Doing Hargreaves Original as my first climb after injury was pretty special too, really nice moves, nice setting and just hard enough to be pretty challenging
This years Scotland was prety good too, had a moment of epiphany leading Jacobs Ladder and feeling comfortably run out and enjoying the climbing, after getting the brown trousers on Y-Couloir few days earlier.
But best of all has to be Conville.It was amazing, felt like a lifetime of dreaming had finally come true, stood on a glacier, under Les Drus and witnessing the Bonatti Pillar crashing down.
Now got some more winter experience, so fingers crossed get some more alpine stuff done next summer, possibly even some alpine rock too.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic Grades and the best gear mainly.
Grades cos i'm fighting a constant battle to improve my grade, although people say it isn't about what grade you climb, I find it a personal thing,I want to be able to see improvements in my climbing.
Gear is a sad nerd thing really, I like shiny bits and the latest technnology. It's called being male.
