Rocky road..

We had a little works-outing to the local climbing centre in Reading yesterday. It was great fun, I haven't climbed anything since I was in my twenties and to be honest was a bit apprehensive about revisiting the activity in my 50s. I needn't have worried it wasn't at all stressful on my various middle-aged ailments like a bad-back and various worn-out joints!

Here is yours truly just negotiating a little overhanging section near the top of one of the walls (about 30 feet up) I'm pleased to report that I held up the "end" of the older generation pretty satisfactorily, in fact none of the youngsters managed to complete this route at all! (although I expect they lasted longer in the pub afterwards...)
