Interests Outside Climbing
Running; not as often or as fast as I used to. Orienteering; good fun when it's too cold to climb (going soft), but my other half thinks "dibbing" is really sad.

Anything Else We Should Know
Not climbing as much as I used to but still aspire to get back to harder climbing. Still need to lose that extra stone (and a half). Damn, it's gone up to needing to lose that extra three stones (and a half). Down to two and a bit stones now.

Wishlist is my "bogey routes" list - all those that I've failed on or need to climb in better style plus a few real "wishlist" climbs.

Logbook is only for E routes that I've led/soloed but i) only for the first time I've led/soloed them - i.e. not subsequent ascents, and ii) only if they were graded that at around the time I first led/soloed them (regardless of what they are graded now) - i.e. there are plenty I've done that are now graded E1 or more but aren't included. Can't be bothered to put on the other 3500 routes.
