Retired from full-time work in the NHS, but have been supporting GP practices on an NHSE project in recent years, which has been really interesting. Climbed on and off for nearly fifty years now, sometimes reaching the dizzy heights of E5. Quite committed to training now and gradually getting back to the grades I used to manage. I'm training because I want to be able to climb stuff that was on my list when I finally let go of work in three or four years time and I suspect that will get harder with age.
Location Disley, Stockport
Best Climbing Experience Loved doing the Steck-Salathe on the Sentinel. Finishing in moonlight and descending the horror gully in the dark
