I have rock climbed, mountaineeed and walked since 1976. This has to date covered covered many areas of upland Britain and Scotland as well as abroad. I learned to climb and mountaineer while still at school in the Peak District, the Lakes and Wales. I Moved to Manchester to do a degree in the eraly 80's (much more climbing in the Peaks and throughout the UK and abroad). This has continued until today. I currently live in Bristol.
