30ish yo French (but not too arrogant, I promise) from the western Pyrénées where a family of mountaineers taught me the beauties of "Pyrénéisme". Have a good knowledge of the valleys of Béarn and try to get back there as often as I can.

I have lived in Germany and Austria 5 years, before settling near the Peak District a few years ago, and fell in love with the region.

After a childhood rich in climbing, I have started climbing again a few years ago.

Best Climbing Experience
Climbing the limestone slabs of the Chemin de la Mâture under a gentle sun and among the lazy green lizards
Lunches on summits above the clouds
Coming down from the Lac de Lhurs under a storm and finding my aunt was preparing lambchops and chips at 5 in the afternoon for our return
