Have been climbing nearly 50 years now with variable levels (but never zero!) of activity. Grew up in Widnes and served my early apprenticeship in the 70's at Pex Hill. Now living in the NE and like a mix of trad, sport and bouldering. Keen to have a last burst of activity and do those classic E2/E3s that have always been on the 'must do' list, before the slow decline begins in earnest. Have to balance work/family commitments with outdoor activities, so mainly a weekend day-trip or weekday evening climber.
