I drive spreadsheets for a living.
Talentless but try hard.
Best Climbing Experience
Pretty much all trips I've been on where there has been good weather, good routes, pleasant company, and preferably more than a weekend to enjoy it all in.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Threads which don't have the usual quota of utter crap spouted in them. Preferably discussions about routes, crags and areas where knowledgeable people are inputting to the discussion.

Drinking, avoiding work, spending time with mates, thinking up cunning plans to spend more time climbing.

Anything Else We Should Know
I try to keep the marginally more achieveable aims on the ticklist, and the completely crazy ones in the privacy of my own head. It also tends to be more focused towards what I'll actually be likely to get on in the next few months.
My best grades are just that, my best. The 7A+ was a pe traverse not a short power problem - I am weaker than I appear... Performance on the day may vary...
