captain sharky

Find it great to be outdoors whatever the weather. Enjoy all forms of climbing but a multi-pitch VS in the mountains is the most preferred.
Married with two children, Bradley and Joel. Try and get on the crags as much as possible and enjoy trips to Wales, Lakes and Scotland.
Enjoy a pint of real ale!

Best Climbing Experience
Topping out on Gashed Crag in the dark...only been climing for a few months and had a mare of a time. Learnt a lot from the experience though, like take a torch, some extra fluids and know your way down before you go up !
