Love climbing anything from bouldering to Multi-pitch mountain routes, but grit, sea cliffs and slate are favourites.
Now trying to balance parenthood, family life, the weather and climbing partners!
Best Climbing Experience
Climbing in the dark on Lundy with seals for company.
Or falling off at Gogarth (I can still see the view between my legs of the gulls and the sea now).
Climbing 29 routes in one day at Birchen.
The first time I landed the jug at the top of Pebble Arete.
Climbing Sundowner and Kayak on the same day.
My feet slipping off as I grabbed the top of Long Tall Sally - and holding it.
3 tier climbing on the Idwal slabs and walls.
60 routes in a day @ Stanage.
Soloing a warm Wall End Slab at sunset in summer.
Climbing @ Froggatt in the middle of the night, in the rain after the pub with The Tan.
