Ian Hill

Committed boulderer, sold my ropes and gear, if anything would prefer to be on granite (in the US...), photographer, 2000AD addict and book lover.

Editor Note - Ian died of pancreatic cancer on 24 December 2012. His contributions to UKC are much missed.

Best Climbing Experience
Finally redpointing Let the Tribe Increase (10 years ago now and the joy of it eventually lead to me virtually giving up routes...), any day bouldering with friends, recently realising that despite wrecked knees I might be able to do Deliverance, days at the Buttermilks
