Enjoy living the good life and seeing the world, currently teaching in edinburgh having travelled the world for a few years ticking lots of classics on the road, and occasionally teaching in order to eat! Spent a lot of time on holiday it seems! Now have a son Ethan who I'm looking forward to taking climbing when he gets a bit older.
Best Climbing Experience
Too many to pick one! Loved living in New Zealand and doing some awesome alpine peaks such as the memorable and stunningly beautiful Mount Aspiring.
I think doing Bloody Sunday and other Pembroke classics in the leap in a long weekend from Edinburgh was a UK highlight and the Grand Wall route in Squamish, the Vestpillaren in Lofoten and the Inshallah Factor in Wadi Rum definitely live up to the hype. (But which is better? Tough Call!)
South Africa was pretty amazing too - climbing in the Cederburg, Waterfall Boven, on Table mountain and the perfect bouldering at Rocklands....oh and my updated favourite long UK weekend was Fay, Diamond Smiles, Dreadnought and Heart of the Sun in the sunshine......
Finally a summer trip to the Alps in 2010 where I thought the Comici Route, the Walker Spur and Kundalini/Luna Nascente in the Val di Mello were all pretty amazing..and I got engaged too! :-)
