Wales' first 9a and the second in the UK.

When I finally did it it wasn't really a big celebration...not initially anyway...It was just a case of "Right, I don't want to come back here"...I didn't climb for a month, didn't touch rock, didn't touch anything. It was a strange period actually, I completely lost motivation.
