Returned to grit after too many years to mention. Used to hitch to Peak and sleep in Robin Hood's Cave, Stanage at 16. Two first ascents in British Columbia (Claremont Tower & Exploration Peak) in 1974. 11 years in Glasgow where I began winter climbing. Now training hard and going for grit again.
Anything Else We Should Know Would love to get back in touch with Hamish Emmerson, who first introduced me to climbing and Robin Hood's Cave. If you read this Hamish, I often think of those early days when passing the cave at Stanage
