still trying to make it as a climber after all these years (one day I WILL lead Positron)in between working from home as an industrial energy consultant.
I live in Leigh between Manchester and Warrington, but plan to escape this year

Best Climbing Experience
Drifting to sleep in my pit on the Big Sandy ledge on Half Dome. waching the lights in the valley through start of a snow storm, any day climbing at Gogarth. Any day climbing in the Peak that ends in couple of pints at the red Lion Litton

Interests Outside Climbing
Skiing, Learning to surf with my son, cycling road and increasingly mtb, clasical music and Rock Music, tastes currently expanding under sons influence. Photography

About My Photography
Was dedicated to film, but now using Pentax K10D and Ganon G10. For me a great photo has to capture the mood of the time. I HATE cliched close ups of a boulder's fingers hanging a hold, not keen on Velvia or HDR either
