"50 Years Ago Today"

Big Chris and Smaller Colin - 50 years on and still getting wet!
Colin was heading back from Spain to the UK so he called in and we spent 10 days climbing together - initially at Orgon - and later around Briançon. The weather was a little unsettled but we managed nine days on the rock and around 40 routes.
Part way through the trip - 5th of May to be precise - it was out 50th anniversary - I first climbed with him at Brimham Rocks on the 5th May 1968. He followed me up Lichen Slab (VDiff) and Birch Tree Wall (VS) in his farm boots.
Half a century on and we still love it!
