getting back into climbing after a period of absense.
currently enjoying a bit of a slate revival in the dinorwic quarries, and loving it!

Best Climbing Experience Indecent exposure at raven torr, did it by accident, thinking it was an E4, didn`t do it in one push, but completed it never the less!
Many holidays to the peak, sleeping rough, getting drunk, and grindelford caff in the morn.
holiday to belgium with me mate ian, loads of brilliant limestone routes, but the best bit was watching ian attempting to climb this 7a+ just after we had got slightly the worse for wear during lunchtime booze session in local cafe,i`ve never seen someone dyno so irraticaly for none exzistant holds, he did this for over on hour, of which most of the time i spent pissing myself, he was taking good 15ft lobs everytime!
waves of inspiration was a buzz, few years ago now though!(on site of course)
good day at frogatt a few years ago, spent whole day soloing on sight, from three and four pebble slabs at beginning, slipping off down hill racer at crux,(bloody polished holds)nearly sweating off synopsis, having a panic on chequers crack( HVS my arse!)and great slab several times coz it`s brill,then taking the plunge, and succeding on,(to the relief of my brothers), hairless heart, what a day in 93!
