Steve Wakeford

Had a top job in telly, stressful, lung collapsed, always wanted to climb mountains, didn't know how, left job, rented out house, moved into camper van, learning.

Until September 2013 my main thing had been mountaineering & trekking, highlights including some big volcanoes in South America and messing around in Patagonia. Then, I spent 28 days on an intensive rock climbing course at the Brenin and have come away extremely keen and addicted. Rope skills area all sorted, just working at getting better at the climbing part. Spent winter knocking around in Scotland and the alps, although broke my leg in a skiing incident, missed 2 months but then came back strong and lead an alpine North Face - Swiss Route, Les Courtes.

Currently living in a van working on the Ashes cricket tour in UK. Looking to head off again in October.
