I have been climbing since my mid twenties, over 20 happy years. I love UK trad and bouldering and maybe this year I will get into British sport climbing. I have left work several times and gone on long climbing trips to the US and Europe. I have generally climbed for fun and to explore new places but I have started pushing myself a bit more - while I still can!
Best Climbing Experience A full day's climbing on a mountain crag in Wales or the Lakes, fantastic summer's day, stumbling down to the pub as it's going dark, missed the food but drink pints of beer and eat crisps and feel extremely happy!
