I like all styles of climbing with a preference for long trad and winter routes.

I don't mind a bit of loose rock and commitment and I like some adventure. I perform better at proper climbing on steep rock and cracks than slabs. I'm not particularly bold.

Anything Else We Should Know
Historically I've only logged climbs I've lead (apart from southern sandstone) and quite often only the first time. However I am now starting to log everything. I keep my log book up to date partially for me and partially for potential partners so they can get an idea of what I actually climb.
