Yes, my ears stick out. No, they do not make good parachutes. I have confirmed this experimentally.
Location Up a hill somewhere
Best Climbing Experience (i) Second ever time climbing outdoors, Middlefell Buttress (Gt Langdale), in excellent weather - had a sudden sense of belonging.
(ii) A rather spectacular sunset in North Wales with another Rocktalker - we just sat there watching it and dribbling (and had a mini-epic coming down in the dark, but that's another story!)
