A modest climber with plenty to be modest about - even the attainment of mediocrity would be a triumph. Been on the crags for about half a century and it's beginning to feel like it - getting to and from the high crags gets more of a struggle by the year - what we need is a Sherpa service. Likes - trad climbing, especially on big mountain crags, easy winter routes, winter and summer walking, real ale, red wine. Don't understand a lot of the modern stuff, eg. don't really "get" bouldering as an activity in itself, and can't distinguish headpoints from redpoints. Despite regarding myself as primarily a trad climber my log book seems to have more and more bolted climbs in it - it's an age thing I think.
