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. Long time slackline hater.

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

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