I have climbed since 1965, and I'm currently leading VS with a sprinkling of HVS 5a, mainly on gritstone in the Peak District. My experience on multi-pitch routes has been intermittent, and mainly in Wales and the Lakes, though in the past 2 years I have climbed in Canada, Bregaglia and the French Alps.
I have a preference for trad rock climbing, and away from crowds. I've done very little sport climbing, but enjoy indoor bouldering.
I've recently part-retired giving a bit more time and flexibility. I am Nottingham based and I have my own transport.

More quantity than quality, but occasionally I capture a shot that I'm very happy with.
Wide variety subjects - landscapes, wildlife, grandchildren and occasionally climbing.
