Love UK trad climbing. Grit, mountains, sea cliffs - the more spectacular and beautiful the better. Winter days on grit highballs, the North West Highlands in spring, The Lakes, Gogarth and Pembroke in the summer.

Don't really like sport climbing or indoors, but I guess I should do a bit if I want to get better. Which I probably do, in theory anyway.

Every year I climb I learn more about UK trad, with new places to be inspired by and routes to aim for. Lundy, Pabbay, Ardnamurchan, Beinn many places I haven't been to yet, so many more brilliant routes to do.

Shame the weather's so crap.

Best Climbing Experience
The Madier route (with a bit of Visite Obligatoire) on Aiguille Dibona, unbelievably beautiful (and not hard or stressful).

A day at Sheigra, the best crag in the universe. Staggeringly beautiful, with climbing so fun it's bound to be made illegal at some point.

Countless hours spent soloing on Stanage. Those routes get better the more you do them.

Steak pie and bitter in The Grouse.

Why grades are all meaningless and subjective, but even so, how my opinion on them is still objectively correct.
