I have been climbing for over 50 years. Nowadays I can only climb up to MVS due to severe arthritis in both shoulders (shoulder replacement only option left now - which would probably mean the end of my climbing).
I only get out occasionally now and avoid leading, as I don't have the confidence that I will be able to pull up when I have to!
Interests Outside Climbing Used to be a rally driver but gave up last year due to lack of funds. I will start up again WHEN I win the lottery.
I used to do a bit of fell running but knee problems put paid to that quite a few years ago now. I still get out on the fells occasinally, although not on the high fells these anymore.
