I have been climbing for longer than seems healthy! In fact I have had more comebacks than Sinatra, and have got to that age where performance on the rock fluctuates wildly! I am so fond of climbing in Dorset that I moved here permanently 6 years ago, and run dorset-climbing.com as a bit of fun.
Location Purbeck, Dorset
Best Climbing Experience Doing the Yellow Spur( Eldorado Canyon, CO), many years ago. We had been robbed earlier in the week, and lost all of our entire possessions(including money and passports). The good people of Boulder came to our aid and gave us clothes and some climbing gear. Completing the route seemed to re-affirmed our belief in human nature and why we were there in the first place- The Climbing!
