Not really enjoying climbing anymore, not as much as I used to anyway. Covid and probably long Covid have unfortunately pretty much ended my climbing, certainly for the foreseeable future. There are still a few North Wales classic routes I've always wanted to do before I hang up my boots though.
Best Climbing Experience So many good ones - standing on my first 4000m peak in the Alps many years ago, superb slab climbing in Sardinia,, Wadi Rum, discovering new areas and climbing new routes in Turkey. Single moments tend to be more memorable for me; such as a summer evening climbing Little Tryfan with a good friend and sitting on top watching the sunset.

Anything Else We Should Know Married to a wonderful Turkish lady, planning on eventually moving to Turkey for good
Barely climbed anything for the last couple of years. , mainly to weight gain and feeling like a total punter. Would like to get on some of the classic North Wales mountain routes though, still got a long tick list to get through.
