I have received a lot of very kind comments about my knowledge of the technical aspects of rock climbing and thought I ought to share a photo of me climbing at Brean Down. The photo was taken in 1988 and what strikes me most of all about it, even more than the climbing itself, is the amount of hair I had back then. Sadly, it has all but gone now!
I spent many happy years climbing all over the UK and Europe and, I hope, have put this experience to good use in As The Crow Flies.
An understanding of the technical references is not essential to appreciate the plot but I hope that they provide an additional point of interest. Anyone with any queries is most welcome to post them here, of course, and I will respond.
