Started out as trad climbing on Northumbrian sandstone. Currently focussing mostly on sport in an attempt to get as fit as I can before I'm totally past it. Then I'll go back to bumbling around on trad.

Best Climbing Experience
Lying flat on my back, admiring the sun setting over the Cheviot hills, having just decked out from 9m up on a route at Kyloe out.

Spending a day on Telendos doing a bunch of 1st and 2nd ascents on a newly developed sector in the company of a great group of people, including a few venerable individuals from the climbing community, followed by a great meal at the local taverna, then getting the 'Pink Floyd' ferry back to Kaly with Wish you were here blasting out.

Interests Outside Climbing
Very few. I probably ought to get some.

Hang on, just thought of one - consuming gin martinis. That counts right?

God I feel old and fat sometimes. When did it all go wrong?
