A mechanical engineer who is slightly obsessed by climbing and mountaineering.
In the summer I spend as much time as possible trad climbing, mostly on sea cliffs in the south west. However, this year I have started to discover the magic of the UK's mountain crags.
In the winter I love being out climbing in the snowy mountains, I often head up to Scotland for the weekend in order to make the most of good conditions.
Best Climbing Experience
Winter Traverse of the Cuillin Ridge in Alpine conditions
Spending a weekend camping below the north face of the Ben and climbing three classic routes with perfect ice and weather conditions
4 days on Lundy in fantastic sunny weather climbing hard classic routes
First HVS onsight lead due to the metal battle to commit to the traverse
