Been climbing trad seriously about 4 years, but have been in going out into mountains since I was nowt but a lad! Grew up in Lakes so lots of fell walking and mountaineering.
Main interest is mountaineering and Scottish winter climbing. Although I'm a bit of a grit monkey living so close to Peak :)
Lead up to VS. Second HVS. E1-E2 on good day if you don't mind me hanging around on your ropes a bit ;)
Best Climbing Experience
1. Topping out on Green Gully on the Ben. Rare perfect Scottish winter conditions with clear blue skies.
2. Watching the sunrise at the hut below Triglav in Slovenia with Kate :D

Most things mountain based! What youd expect from a Cumbrian really!
