Where was the most surprisingly nice place you've ever climbed?
During the lockdown in 2021, the most surprisingly nice place I ever climbed was a local Crag five minutes away from my house. After months of not being able to climb, it felt amazing to be outside and enjoy climbing again with friends. Even though it was probably one of the worst Crags in the world, it was the best thing ever in that moment.

We haven't climbed in months because climbing was banned in the UK for a period. And when climbing was finally allowed, again we went to the local Crag. Five minutes on my house where I take my dogs walking and we had never enjoyed going climbing, so much after months and months of doing absolutely nothing. Just hanging on a finger boards or climbing in our little indoor boards in our, in our sheds. Finally, we're allowed to go out climbing. It was beautiful. There's a wonderful day. There was people at the Crags, a big group of us and it was just nice to be outside and enjoying climbing again. And the funny thing about that crack is it's probably one of the worst Crags. In the world is pure Choice, the holder literally falling off, but just in that moment, at that time, it was the best thing ever."
