Stereotypical obsessive indoor climber who trains indoors to get strong for outdoor stuff. Love travelling, climbing at new crags and meeting new people.
Best Climbing Experience
1) Topping out on Leg Slip E1 5B at Tremadog, first time I got really scared climbing. Got stuck in the groove on P2 and couldn't work out how to continue, gave myself a talking to for 5 minutes and then did the moves and got to the belay. Had a total adrenaline rush and just sat there for another 10 minutes before belaying Oli up
2) Climbing Seams The Same E1 5B in the slate quarries as my 3rd E1. Felt really nervous with the thin gear and the tough (at the time) crux. Ran out the top half of the climb and felt like I was having an out of body experience topping out. What a rush!
3) Onsighting The Plum E1 5b/c in the blazing sun at Tremadog. Absolutely quality climbing with a few bold moments, never been happier sitting on the edge of the arête setting up the belay for Alan and enjoying the view.
