Feeling bold

Got my first taste of climbing and the mountains as a teenager then got stuck back in when I reached 40 and decided to hang up my hockey stick.

My world is kept happy by getting down the wall with my friends, sometimes bouldering, always running and getting out to the big hills and mountains whenever possible. U

Gimme fresh air and adventure!

Best Climbing Experience
Love mountaineering in Scotland and the Alps. Winter ascents of CMD, Tower Ridge and Aonach Eagach and Weissmiess traverse are up there along with a stomp up Cotapaxi and other smaller volcanoes in Ecuador.

Interests Outside Climbing
I wish I could climb harder and escape polish.

Running, circuits, yoga, occasional cycling, gardening, motorcycling. Recently took up Jitsu - struggling to keep up with the young guns here, getting bruised and battered too often, questioning my sanity for taking it up...I'll give it a year.

Grew up on bikes, there was a pony as well. Got back in the saddle in 2006 when I bought a Suzuki Bandit following a visit to the Peak district which is buzzing with bikes.

Anything Else We Should Know
I joined the RAF Reserves in 2009, so I could do my bit to help our home-grown heroes.
