Hi there, I've been climbing since I was a kid, I had the good fortune of growing up near an indoor wall. My climbing really started coming into its own when I turned 17 and got a car (my parents weren't exactly supportive of my sporting ambitions). I went to outdoor rec college in Dorchester, which was a complete waste of time, and now I'm a driving instructor.
I used to work for an outdoor company, NST, but I retired from that industry because PGL bought it and I just couldn't bring myself to work for that company.
I enjoy taking pics climbing, and making vids, but not to any great standard. Here's my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/jimwitt21/videos?flow=grid&view=0
Not much else I can say really.
Best Climbing Experience
No idea. Been climbing too long to chose!

Interests Outside Climbing
I love heavy metal music, interested in tattooing, and obviously my job as a driving instructor. I was the youngest person to enroll to the driving instructor college in Southampton, and passed the final qualifying exam first time.
I used to kayak and canoe, until a shoulder injury stopped that a few years ago.
