Anything Else We Should Know
These days my grades keep improving every time a new guidebook comes out but generally I climb mountain HVS's and the odd well protected mountain E1 in control as opposed to harder routes on adrenaline...! Older wiser and more brittle you could say?
I'm a qualified mountaineering and ski instructor...
