A keen climber and mountaineer living in London. I have being climbing since 2009 when I left Brazil and had to find something to replace paragliding - UK is not the best place for flying but I will be back at some point ;-) My true passion is alpinism and all the discomfort associated with it but I am also psyched for ice, trad (specially multi-pitch) and sport. Getting into big walling at the moment... will be in Yosemite in September 2013.
Since I've started climbing quite late and most of my over 30's sportsmen's friends are getting soft, I am always happy to get to know new partners, either to lead or follow the hard stuff.
I am a true believer in honesty, style and ethics and that the summit is not as important as the journey itself. I am always psyched for expeditions, that soft easy climb, a short trip to bag a 4000m peak during the weekend or some nasty Friday-Sunday London-Scotland drive up :-)
Best Climbing Experience
Full traverse of the Matterhorn (no lifts, straight from Cervinia down to Zermatt),
Summiting Ben Nevis after so many attempts and bad weather,
Falling off and summiting Monch through the Nollen Route,
Mont Blanc, normal route (first alpine trip ever)
