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
Chapelle de la Gliere! 400m, 14 Pitches of awesome climbing in glorious sunshine, with Mont Blanc in background. :D

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