What Goes Up

Don't manage to get a huge amount of climbing in, largely indoors as central Hampshire isn't exactly a rock mecca, but have managed to get out a few times at Portland. Have an indoor 6b under my belt on lead but usually more around the 5+ area. Not quite up there yet outdoors sport.

Best Climbing Experience
Just climbing generally - that's good enough for me right now. First go outdoors at Portland, I guess (especially learning how well shoes grip to proper rock!). [UPDATE - have been back and since learned that shoes don't stick to all rock at Portland]. Some cracking via ferrata and fairly high mountains scaled in Italy.

It's all good. Fear and overcoming it is always an interesting one.

About My Photography
I'm a wedding photographer by trade (still looking for my first mountain-top wedding if any UKC readers fancy it!), but like to shoot all sorts for fun (especially travel, the odd landscape, people in various situations). Fortunate to have built up a nice set of kit over the last few years.
