I've been fighting gravity for over 55 years. Unlike me it doesn't seem to be tiring, getting older or prone to injury.
I'm still trying though!

Best Climbing Experience There's lots, Baffin Island in 1975 was a spicy experience for a young Blakey, reaching flat ground after a slow ascent of the Muir Wall would be another. First trip to the Verdon in 1976 was pretty special, as was Tuolumne with my wife in 1997. I was lucky enough to live on the doorstep of the Cochise Stronghold in Arizona for 18 months - that was quite something. Nowadays I dig around in the County looking for (and finding) new venues and generally enjoy the company and crack of the squad on our Saturday sessions. A flying visit to Riglos paid dividends, ticking Biceps, which was something I'd wanted to do for years. And in 2019 weaving between the lockdowns I managed 9eventually) to do the Comici Diamai on Tre Cime, something I first tried in 1977. That was a big day!
