Bird of Paradise/Paradise Lost
7b+: The Jimi Hendrix Experience?
3. Go make the effort to walk into and tick off some newish Welsh classics: Zeno & Manou, to name but two
7b+: The Jimi Hendrix Experience? Bird of Paradise/Paradise Lost? Both in the right places and have emotional resonance, other suggestions welcome!

Got a few days off this month that would work if you can get off child care for a few hours
I didn't post one of these last yearfor some reason.Climbing wise there's only one sensible goal:Onsight big E5s consistentlyWith this in mind I think my goals should really be a routes wishlist:The Axe / Positron / Right Wall / Headhunter / Barbarella / Darkinbad / Eroica / Get Some In / Circus Circus / The Jackal / Dog Eat Dog / Pacemaker / Warpath / SupersonicIf I get half of them done I'll be happy! I've got sport routes I'd like to do too, but I always see them as a gauge of fitness really. Have a trip to Taghia booked in, so getting one of the big 7b+s there done would be cool.

Last year pretty woeful for me, started strong, then tweaked pulleys on both hands and ended up having only 11 days climbing outside.All things being well I'm (well my wife is) having our first child within the next couple of weeks. So that will change things. But lots of dads on here gives me hope that with organisation and efficiency I can still climb OK.Suspect after we have a kid my goals may all change and be focused on sleep and keeping aforementioned child alive.
I'd also like to revisit a previous goal and get round to doing Long John's Slab, which is a long time ambition from when I started climbing - my first ever trip out (c.1996) was to Froggatt and remember seeing someone cruise it solo and thought "I'd like to be able to do that one day".
