Cumbrian lad, married with 3 sons to deal with. Get out climbing most weeks either at the Wall or cragging on summer evenings and the occasional weekend.
Best Climbing Experience Ice-climbing by moonlight around Blea Water in the lakes - climbed up above a cloud inversion to find the surrounding peaks lit up by the moon. The cloud looked thick enough to step onto, no wind, clear sky, full moon, absolutely beautiful.
