    There was some routes just to the left I would of liked time on, but happy to give it up to a bunch of kids an instructors out climbing for the day, so I kept with this one as there was no interest for it, but lots of other area's and training moves to try, still was a fine day out, and hiked up to Hay Tor for a warm down, there are some really cool climbs to be had there!

    Thank you! last time I was doing this kind of thing was when I was at school only a few miles from the Tor, now I'm 48 and feel just as capable if not more so, I guess a youthful mind and adventurous life have show to being a good formula.

    I think so too, but arthritis and damaged joints disagree :sigh:

    Same here, I’m not too bothered,I’ve done a huge amount of tree climbing and plenty of scrambling in Devon, Dorset, Pesk District, Yorkshire, Wales Southern Ireland. I was basically a see some rocks, must try and climb them child and bloke. Same with beautiful trees. I still see big old Beeches and think they would make a lovely climb. There’s something exciting about getting right up into the thinner branches and using multiple anchor points to spread the weight just to prune out a branch.

    What I shall enjoy, is being able to walk further without pain, walk-in camping so I can get to my favourite haunts. Just increased mobility to allow me to appreciate the joys of Spring and Summer and coming home with two exhausted dogs rather than having to play tuggies all evening.

    It’s a lovely Tor is that one, as a youngster I’d be getting pretty excited to try my luck at a free climbing that stack. Used to drive my mum mad with worry. :tantrum:

    I have to admit a bit of envy, I know how much fun it is. :)

    I keep telling folk to get out there and do all you want to while you're young. At least that way the aches and infirmities of getting older don't leave you with quite such frustration and vexation at your younger self.

    I am walking again. I never couldn't walk, but I couldn't walk to even the end of the street without wanting to cry. That's settled thankfully, but I have no safe downhill walk, and uphill hurts like hell after quarter of a mile.
    Bit of a bugger when the landscape is pretty much up and down, but well, it's better than no landscape or no walk.

    Glad to hear you're feeling confident and anticipating getting out and about again Nice65 :D
    Lovely time of year to recover and regain stamina, isn't it ?

    True, it is M. Couple of months and loads of physio should see me right. I wouldn’t mind heading to Devon and admiring the Tor’s again, it’s a lovely county.

    I don't think there's another 46 years in me. Maybe, but I doubt I'll be mobile much if there are.

    I hate that, I hate that I cannot reliably move me. Thing is I'm too damned stubborn not to move.

    You also need to have more digits than the national average to fit in properly.
