I started climbing on my 7th birthday and after competition climbing as a youth I fell away from climbing through my teens. After arriving at university I began climbing again down Dumbarton Rock and now cant get enough of it!

Best Climbing Experience
Topping out on Bludgers Revelation with Luke McPhee. I had 4 previous attempts to climb this route. Twice rained off at the bottom of the crag and twice sitting on a belay waiting for people in front before abbing off. Successful attempt resulted from us leaving work in Edinburgh at 5pm and driving up to the Glen. Starting the route at 9pm and topping out at 1am on the summer solstice.

Climbing the amazing Lady Jane on Aonach Dubh East Face in the summer sun with my brother.

Countless winter routes in Scotland.

Night ascent of Tower Ridge and Curved Ridge.

Climbing in the mountains with good friends.
