Neil Gresham deep water soloing in Ha Long Bay in Vietnam

My head is the strongest aspect of my climbing. I’m always psyched and I find giving up to be an absolute last resort. There are plenty of routes that have got the better than me, but I can honestly say that I always gave them my best.

No-one ever got anywhere by not trying harder than you think you can! Try, try, try. And if that doesn’t work, keep trying! And smile. A smile gets you a long way!
