Best Climbing Experience
Topping out twice on Glyder Fawr in one day with Ed - firstly by soloing the Ordinary Route / Cniefon Arete combo before lunch in the rain, then by doing Tennis Shoe Direct / Javelin Blade / Grey Arete in the afternoon when the sun came out

Soloing on sight Saliva, Queersville, Leaning Buttress Direct, Hell Crack, Step Ladder Crack and the Direct, Louisina Rib, Via Media, Heather Wall and Manchester Buttress one silly competitive afternoon with Andy

Wobbling up the short steep side of the Inn Pinn with Woody with big boots, slings, a borrowed rope and a fair amount of inexperienced terror on the first proper trip to the mountains for both of us

Diedros Magicos with Will on our third attempt, having been turned back by snow on previous trips. My last big route with him, and what a belter it was too.

Magical Mystery Tour with about 20 friends the day after my wedding as my first (and so far only) DWS

Engineers' Slabs in the evening sunshine with Chris, still making it back to Wasdale Head for last orders

Leading the top pitch of Ichabod with water pouring down it after Mark had assured me it would be dry. The first pitch (his) was, but the top was soaking and quite a battle.

Update 2021. Covid seems to have turned me into a boulderer. Loving going to the Depot on a regular basis with my 12 year old. Had great trips this year to Rylstone, Great Wolfrey, Gorple, Huller Stones, Roundhill, Blackstone Edge.
