Best Climbing Experience
Stanage in August. When the heather is in full bloom and when the climbing day finishes with a red sky blazing across the hills.
Interests Outside Climbing
Northern soul. Dancing.
Anything Else We Should Know
Likes Scrambling, trail running, indoor wall climbing currently only at 6bon a top rope. I enjoy climbing up to severe lead outdoors, very severes as a second and have only done HVS when lied to about the grade and equally coached and coaxed.
Like caving on abseils and traverses, short ducks
Winter mountaineering - ice axe and crampons not ice climbing ... yet! navigating in poor conditions, 'big days out' on personal challenges in the hills, e.g. running Snowdon, fell camping, cave camping, night navigation
Last but not least, dancing to northern soul.
