Swirly

I'd rather be sleeping

Rubbish climber, bad mountaineer, passable snowboarder. Happiest when combining all three in some misguided attempt to prove a splitboard is as good as touring skis. Apart from the early start that is.

Best Climbing Experience
The next one, the last one.

Hiking the ridge on the Bec des Rosses shortly after the FWT finals had been held ready to find out what steep really means. Carrying on up knowing that two 40 m pitches into the remaining 30 minutes of twilight doesn't go.
