Offwidth climber, shape, views and humour. Often obsessive on lower grades, especially on grit: BMC guidebook worker and see also the lower-grade peak grit website I've co-authored below. Also an academic and was a student club equipment secretary for over a decade. I like my food and drink, especially in the later category Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Ardbeg.
