ianstevens

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 fighting grade inflation, one petty argument at a time.

Currently not climbing anything due to only having one functional arm.

Currently I only own one functioning arm, so rather than climbing I am typing slowly and getting fat.

Finally upgraded from borrowing other people's cameras and using auto to getting a dSLR, which I often leave at home/in the car/at the bottom*
