Nigel Thomson

I'm a forty something climber living in Scotland just an hour or two's drive from the mountains.
First got the bug cragging in local quarries but have a deep love for gritstone and the white peak having spent a few years in Sheffield.
Love being out in winter and especially Southern Highlands.
