alan moore

My Dad and I taught ouselves to climb in the late 80's and, climbing exclusively together, explored British esoteria and adventure routes for well over a decade. I met my future wife at Three Cliffs Bay, moved to Scotland, and climbed further afield in Lofoten and the USA. Now, with 3 young children, I climb mostly solo, my greatest climbing pleasure, zooming around deserted crags at unsociable hours.
