Retired. Still leading E1 in 2018 and 6B/6B+. Seconding a grade or two harder. Diagnosed with Myeloma in November 2018 . Chemo resulted in nerve damage to my feet - loss of sensation in soles of feet- makes climbing difficult, cant tell if I'm stood on holds.

Location
west yorkshire HD9.

Best Climbing Experience
first long alpine routes in Chamonix in early years of climbing. Many of the routes in the Wilder Kaiser, Bregaglia and especially the routes on mountain crags in Scotland. More recently Fairhead, so wish I had discovered this decades ago (all the better for sharing the experience with the late Dave Booth).

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
