Best Climbing Experience
When i'm not 'working' hard routes on my shunt, I love adventure climbing - by this, i mean climbing with one or more pitches thru mixed terrain. That said, hav'nt got much time 4 hanging belays !!!!

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Precious 'right on' climbers / the ethics brigade (i've never met a climber yet who has'nt rested on his or her gear when they were pushing the boat out, tho some claim its better to fall off and injure yourself) IE: if you got up it and enjoyed yourself, and did'nt kill yerself in the process, i dont care how you did it ! There are more versions of the so-called 'on-sight' than there are of vegetarians, its more important to get out and enjoy yourself ! Incidentally, i'm all for bolting dangerous climbs too ! and replacing all those shitty pegs and tapes too- especially in swanage but fuck it, i'd do pembroke too !!!!!!!!!

Interests Outside Climbing

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm definately out for enjoyment above all else ...ie: i'd rather savour 3 or 4 quality lines than try to cram in as many e points as pos in a day...
