I was doing gymnastics up to the age of 18, so went well for my following year when I started climbing.
I have climbed nearly every weekend and mid week all over the UK and abroad.
My grade has been up and down as most climbers from E1 to E5 trad 6a to 7b sport and only onsight.
I was a professional photograher for 15 years so I could climb more.
Retired at 57, Born in Barnsley now live in the Lakes and have a house in the Languedoc France.
Now onsighting 6b+ E2 hope I can maintain these grades for a few more years
Location Lake district and Languedoc
Best Climbing Experience Far too many to choose
