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
Fed up of paying for SLR repairs and now use single-use cameras much of the time! (Kodak Compact Ultra is good.) Also have a Fuji A345 and a A920 which are both excellent but I dont often subject them to the horrors of winter mountain weather.

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.
