After being a long haired goth/hippy for the last 20yrs or so, I've recently gone for the convict look. I try to run 5 miles on at least 4 days per week, and am currently climbing on 2 of the other days if possible. I play bass & guitar in a band called Pencilface. I'm a vegetarian, and yes, that does mean I don't eat fish either ;-)
I'm partial to the odd drop of single malt whisky, Laphroaig being a firm favourite and have been known to knock back the odd beer or two, but it has to be proper beer. Ooh, and I can be a pedantic git if you're speling and punktuashun R appalllin . . .
Best Climbing Experience
Near the top of Cadair Idris (Sept 2002) waiting for Pete, Cyril, John, Tim (the Grey), Wingnut, and Captain Paranoia to climb up (I'd walked), with clouds blowing over the ridge into the cwm containing Llyn Cau, and with the sun behind me, I saw my shadow on the clouds, which was immediately surrounded by a halo made of rainbow... And I didn't have my camera (sob)!
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Computers, ha! Look, I'll dabble in anything climbing related, read lots of books (about climbing) and lots of climbing related stuff on this site.

Interests Outside Climbing
Books, guitars, music, running, Terry Pratchett, films of the "BladeRunner", "The Crow", "Stigmata", "Blade", "The Fifth Element", "Kill Bill" ilk, Greenpeace, and I like to make computer generated artwork using a free program called POVRay...
I play guitar in a band called Pencilface, who mostly do covers these days. I record some of my own music under the name of The Delilah Ritual.
And linux is the way forward in computing.
About My Photography
Sometimes I submit photos purely for informational reasons, to illustrate a point. Then some git votes 1 for them. It's disheartening.

Anything Else We Should Know
Been ill since July 2006, which has almost completely curtailed my outdoor climbing ambitions - and outdoor climbing - for the moment. Just had, on Jan 12th 2009, an operation to remove my large intestine :-(
