Sam Marks

I am 15 years old and enjoy climbing and exploring in the north york moors, I have been climbing for about a year and i hope to improve and put up some new routes. (If i get good enough)

Cross about the fact that everyone is using pads these days, and don't appretiate/give recognition/know about the rewards of beign bold and only aknowledge the quality of routes for their moves.
