A mega multi-pitch through the biggest roof I’ve ever seen!
How come people think I'd know about training for older climbers? Oh yes, I'd forgotten, I'm 50! Check my older person article. (older and wiser of course)
For me, the best Roctrip yet, and that's saying something! Not just amazing climbing in an amazing place, but at last a real gathering after what seems far too long.
Honestly, one of the best hard trad routes I’ve ever done!


Why do I climb? I thrive on finding a way, searching for a path through difficulties. Hunting for the most efficient use of the holds that are offered. It's not just about physical strength, but mind and body working together. I live for the immersion that climbing can give, all thoughts cast aside with only pure movement remaining.
