Mainly a trad climber though not averse to dabbling in sport and I train often indoors. Partial to the odd bit of winter walking and lots of experience with relatively non-serious mountaineering in Europe.
Trad experience includes time in Yosemite, Dolomites, Alps, Anti-Atlas, Arapiles, Oz Grampians, Tasmania and a few other spots.
Tried Scottish winter climbing but wasn't enough of a massochist to enjoy it.
Best Climbing Experience
Many when I was younger. I had many family holidays to mountaineer (not hard technical climbing) in Austria when I was in primary and secondary school.
Mountain guides taking pictures of my 5 year old sister as she climbed onto the top of the Piz Buin (3312m) was pretty cool!

Interests Outside Climbing
[cough] online gaming [cough]
Being outdoors, whether its walking, climbing or just getting some air keeps me going.
I have done a lot of skiing and mountain biking in the past but don't really do much of either atm due to lack of money and lack of a working bike, in that order!

Anything Else We Should Know
I really really love bomber hex placements!
I bought a couple of zeros that were on special offer for less than half price and trust them so little I don't even take them on most of my leads (hows that for a waste of money :oS).
