Flinticus

Let's face it, a kind of munro & corbett bagger who likes scrambling, camping and winter (and autumn, spring & summer) walking. Also cycle, though mainly just the ride to work.
Largely focused on bouldering since started into this climbing thing (only back in March 2011), spoilt with living close to both the GCC and the TCA.
Update: Began indoor lead climbing (May 2013), hope to follow this with outdoor sport climbing (freakily there is a quarry within a few miles of my hometown in Ireland with a fair few sport routes: such venues are rarer than hen's teeth and finding it was bizarre) but not till I've got the whole clipping in thing and belaying cracked.

Location
Scotland

Best Climbing Experience
Very limited. Very limited indeed! All indoors apart from some pottering about on boulders and a few short routes. Only one named route: Zebra at Craignaw in Galloway, a VS 5a.

My best experiences are high camps in the Scottish mountains or staying in remote bothies.

About My Photography
Used to do it fairly seriously then largely gave it up. Digital made the whole manual developing process & skills etc obsolete and, if you want to take it seriously, it eats money.
