October 2006. Great North Road P2. Colin on belay. "It's up there". Climbed up, small holds, getting smaller, gear in, close to limit, climb down. Look at Colin. He looks back. I gather myself and climb, up past the gear, out over the drop, up under the roof, flap in a wire, useless! Grab a cam, ram it in, clip it and breathe. Breathe some more. Pull up and round, angle eases, more gear in! It's done! Look down and there is my Dad at the bottom of the crag, he'd come along to watch the game, just like he used to do when I was a 16 year old in the first team, sneaked up without saying anything.
