My climbing has slowed down since we had kids, but still as active as I can. I have worked in the roped access industry for 30 years now, prior to that it was agriculture, working for the Yorkshire Dales National Park as a warden and a dry stone waller.
My world now seams to revolve around my kids & Moorland Gritstone, but enjoy doing long classic routes in the hills when I can escape Saddleworth.
Location Gateway to the Chew Valley
Best Climbing Experience Probably soloing 100 routes at the Roaches in a day with a mate when we should have been working.
The Old Man of Hoy experience, it�s not just the climb! That good I�ve done it 3 times to date.
Cullin Ridge, took me 4 attempts due to the weather, but well worth it, especially watching the amazing sunset, sat in my bivi-bag at the Inn Pinn with a good malt in my hand.
Now its summer evenings in the Chew Valley followed by a couple of pints.
