Best Climbing Experience
Hmm... that's tricky. Soloing up and down all those classic VDiffs on Idwal Slabs on a sunny summers afternoon was pretty fantastic. But then there have been some fun 'epics' on some VSs in wales when the weather has turned foul & we've ended up climbing through waterfalls.

Every trip to font also counts as a fantastic climbing experience. Bouldering heaven!

Anything Else We Should Know
Have been in loads of bands from a young age. Have played at a few big festivals (Glastonbury x 3, V98, Edinburgh festival, Lizzard, Oerol to name a few) and lots and lots of pub gigs around the country (and Holland, France and Germany). Yes, I love music. Haven't been able to play much since moving out to California though. I'm quite looking forward to playing more when I move back.
