Best Climbing Experience
Topping out on my first ice climb grinning from ear to ear and Sandy Allan looking down at me saying "When are you giving up your job then?"
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Anything over-complicated. (Like helicopters maybe? Or government contracts?)
Moderator for 1 crag, checking missing climbs added to the logbooks: The Saddle
Interests Outside Climbing
My daughter. Human Rights Law, peaty malts and rear-wheel drive. Making crowdie, wholemeal bread and blue-eyed brunettes. Arguing with Sheriffs. Arguing with more Sheriffs. Trying to nail crooked solicitors. Trying to tell the Crown Office their job.
About My Photography
Sometimes use single-use cameras in challenging conditions if i can get hold of them. Have managed to break a Fuji A345 and a A920 which were both excellent. Now have Nikon L30. Still have Olympus OM30 bodies and lenses but they don't often get an outing these days.

Anything Else We Should Know
Not shy. Been known to have opinions. Will always be there if someone needs help.
One day I might get good at this: don't hold your breath.
