I enjoy most types of climbing but gritstone trad is what I love. Just started to break into E1 and hoping to get into E2 over this winter. I do enjoy bouldering and the occasional bolted route too. In last few years I have got really into climbing trips abroad in places such as Spain, Croatia, Thailand and Laos next stop Morocco at Easter. Also got into Scottish winter stuff last year and planning to do more. Currently doing a degree in PE and Outdoor Education. Work in an outdoors shop to pay for my playtime and to get cheap gear. Also doing my SPA and ML with a view to being an instructor some day. Just bought a van too so I can have loads more climbing adventures, hoping to go on a European climbing odyssey in it this summer :)
