Based up North in Carlisle I have been climbing since my father first took me out to the Lakes when I was 12 and have enjoyed travelling and climbing all over Europe, America and Australia ever since. After serving my apprenticeship tradding in the Lakes I now concentrate almost exclusively on Sport climbing and really enjoy pushing myself to the max and can usually be found at Malham these days!

Best Climbing Experience
Redpointing my first 8a Toadall Recall at Malham aged 40 opened my eyes as to what was possible and was responsible for starting my current obsession with Yorkshire Lime!Topping out after a full day on Pichenibule in the Verdon Gorge with my dad totally dehydrated and heading straight to the bar in La Palud! The Groove at Malham and Supercool at Gordale in 2009 were memorable.Redpointing Urgent Action in 2011 to complete The Yorkshire Triple Crown was pretty special.
