spidermonkey09

Still a student at Leicester University. Former president of the mountaineering club. Complete slatehead but really I just love North Wales! Getting back into grit, and nice to be doing a bit of bouldering after dismissing it for years. Primarily focused on trad climbing but looking to do more sport climbing and bouldering as training for hard trad!

Best Climbing Experience
Spotting Silly Arete in the guidebook and obsessing about it for weeks before somehow doing it in perfect weather as well. Amazing climbing, an outrageous position and a good healthy dose of fear. Incredible!
