TheseKnivesMan

Grew up in the northwest highlands of Scotland, but never appreciated climbing for what it is until half way through my university career in Edinburgh. Now living and working in the capital but I try and get into the hills as much as I can. I'm a pure bumbly and punter through and through but I don't mind! I just love the mountains, especially in Winter. 70% of the time I am out is just Summer/Winter hillwalking but I would like to work my way up the Winter grades as well as do some trad climbing, not just so I can call myself a mountaineer (lol), but so I can continue putting myself in incredible situations.

Enjoying running and cycling as well.
