I'm based in Sheffield, where I research metals and alloys
There are two reasons I love climbing, getting out into the hills and feeling some exposure is only half of it, doing beautiful moves on good quality routes is what does it for me.
I want to push my grade a bit an now, just to increase the number of climbs available to me, and as the grades get harder the moves only get more satisfying.
