I'm based in Aberdeen and have been climbing since 2009 after falling in with the wrong crowd! Pretty obsessed now, especially with Scottish winter climbing but also love bouldering and trips to Font. Progressed to alpine climbing last summer and can't wait until next year's trip!

Best Climbing Experience
Comb Gully with my wife, Point Five Gully in stonking conditions, Trappfoss in Rjukan and Fontainebleau in general! The Rochefort Arête blew my mind...
