Chronically psyched. Currently based in South Wales. Alpinism, expeditions, winter climbing and long mountain trad routes.

Best Climbing Experience
Topping out of Hidden Chimney, my first proper Scottish mixed route, and two years later soloing it in some of the worst blizzard conditions I've ever been out in and feeling totally in control.

Frendo Spur in a single 9 hour push.

Every inch of Sticil Face, soaking up the incredible Shelterstone atmosphere.

Getting buzzed by an Apache helicopter on the crux of Gargoyle Wall, in the sun.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Greater ranges craziness, alpinism, winter etc.
