Glaciology postgrad that climbs stuff, although not as much climbing as I would like! (to much postgrading to be doing unfortunately). Jack of all styles, master of none, a lover of sketchy gear, long runouts and getting terrified.

Currently attempting to push up the E grades, get on loads of classics and get that elusive 7a onsight! Plus getting things done to join the MIA bandwagon.

Finishing off Diagonal in the dark after a 7.30 (pm) start in early May. At least we planned for it!
