I love taking photos of hills and mountains but recently I haven't found as much time to do that, especially since moving to Bristol from North Wales. Born in the Midlands, home is where the grit is!

Best Climbing Experience
Mountain routes are my favourite days, low stress and long climbing is definitely more favourable than high stress short routes!

Grooved Arete, Commando Ridge, Long Via Ferratas in Dolomites / Austria, Tower Ridge, Castle Ridge, Idwal Slabs with Cnefion Arete, Clgwyn Y Persons Arete.
