I started climbing in 2011 and have managed to get a lot done around the Wye Valley, Mendip and Bristol area. Currently I onsight around VS but will sometimes lead harder routes particularly if I've seconded them previously. I also enjoy sport climbing and can onsight F6a/soft F6a+. I've redpointed up to 6c. If I've only got a few hours free I often climb indoors at Redpoint or TCA.
There are several people I climb with on a regular basis, but Iím happy to climb with new people although I prefer it if they have a profile filled in with at least a list of their recent climbs -- when Iím looking to get out climbing I sometimes put a post on the UKC forum.
Best Climbing Experience
Collapsing exhausted in the snow on the summit of Stob Coire nan Lochan after linking a couple of "easy" winter routes. The last 100m of front-pointing up the névé carrying rack, rope (that we didn't even use) and bag nearly finished me -- but lying there, at the top, scoffing a flapjack, was deeply satisfying.
And getting Stone Town clean at Cheddar on a hot sweaty summer evening.

Interests Outside Climbing
I occasionally fish, also run or hill walk to stay reasonably fit. I did a lot of hill walking several years back and was trying to work through all the Welsh 2000ft+ hills, but I've had a knee problem that's put that objective on hold for a bit. I've also done a handful of Munros, and will hopefully get a few more ticked off if the knee improves.
