Currently based in Sheffield (reading English) and climbing lots.
Best Climbing Experience
2009: Getting fit for a trip to Mallorca and having the best time with my brother whilst there. Trying to flash a F7a+ and shouting about it lots when I did; La Ley De La Deseo - fantastic multi-pitch day out; acrobatic lowering off over the road at Valldemossa and every 30m pitch we did.
2008: Spending a week in Costa Blanca with my brother during time off from uni. Had a quality time onsighting sport routes, first experience of climbing abroad and absolutely loved it. Definately more to come!
2007/8: Discovering the peak as I started uni at Sheffield.
2007: Last Sunday (14th Jan) Having not been able to get out climbing for months, we awoke after a night of heavy drinking to glorious weather. Got up to Ilkley shortly after and proceeded to have a fantastic day, moving over to the Glen where I got Phil's Wall (V7) again, and did Parker (also V7) a problem which eluded me all last winter, in one session.
This also went to show how rubbish indoor (bouldering) grades are, or how different the style is, because I've only managed one V5 indoors this season!

About My Photography
Have just gone digital; expect photoshop faggotry.
I have to admit that my photos have an ulterior motive. Most of them are blatent propaganda for Shipley Glen. Everyone should climb there at least once. Forget what YorkshireGrit.com says about it not being very attractive, its fantastic!
