Chris the Tall
Married, climbing for over 20 years, mostly on peak grit, mostly in the VS-E2 range.
Tall, a bit too heavy and completely lacking in upper body strength.
Can frequently be found soloing the classics on Stanage and Burbage.

About My Photography
I just point and shot, though not necessarily in that order. Been using a Canon Ixus for the last few years, and just bought a new one, though don't expect any dramatic improvements.
