Im the same, still teach people but Im selective as well, only teach people who I would want belaying me these days. I don't have as much spare time as when I was younger and at uni which is probably the common theme as to why people teach less newbies.

Although I don't spend time teaching uni clubs anymore, if any uni clubs need a hand getting on top of their risk assessment documentation given some of the recent issues which have occurred with various clubs, just ask and I'll happily help out.
