I'm pretty crap at the mo' (VDiff lead) but I'm making a big push this year to move upwards. It's going ok so far with a fair bit of soloing and bouldering.
I aspire to do stuff in the Alps. I'm wanting to get solid at leading multi-pitch VS routes and III/IV winter in the UK before I visit the European Alps. Greater Ranges? They are soo big!
Besides this I'm a regular mtb rider (XC 2-3x week) and a skier (mostly on-piste). I'm also an aspirant caver. Still not sure if I like caving. It's rough stuff, that's for bloody sure!
As regards paddling. I love it in summer but don't have my own boat so it's on the back burner unless anyone knows any good clubs in Lancs?
