An official "Holiday Climber" (https://www.thebmc.co.uk/british-team-climb-new-routes-on-greenlands-west-coast-rock-walls), I've been climbing since 1996, but started climbing more frequently after moving to Norway in 2011, mostly bouldering and sport climbing with the occasional trad sortie.
My most recent big trip was 4 weeks sailing and climbing in Greenland with Bob Shepton (of Belgian wild bunch fame).
I've been on a few summer trips to the Alps, climbing some basic peaks (Gran Paradiso, Lagginhorn, etc.) and more recently some bigger rock routes.
I also worked for 2 seasons as a ski instructor, and have done quite a bit of ski touring, including the Haute Route and a bunch of stuff here in Norway and some in Japan and N. America.
In 2014/15 I started ski mountaineering racing, which is my new thing. I tried the Mezzalama, but couldn't make it to the postponed race. Did the route ourselves instead, so I'm ready for 2017.
I also run a fair bit; mostly off-road, but I'm going for my first marathon in June 2016, and then again in Berlin in September. My goal is 3hrs. My pb for 1/2 marathon is 1h30 in hilly terrain, so I remain optimistic!
I've travelled quite a bit - over 60 countries on all continents.
