Have a friend who went to the Rockies when we were kids. Started climbing in the UCCMC (University College Cardiff Mountaineering Club) in November 1974. Club hut in Nant Peris. Climbed a lot in Wales and Avon (Avon just down the road from Cardiff). Then back to USA. Climbed a lot at the Gunks (Gunks just up the road from NYC). Then to London: Avon, Pembroke, Peak. Then to Scotland: mostly East Coast, Glen Clova. Now getting old. Most people my age have a traumatic relationship to their age.
