Been climbing on and off for.....well since before camming devices and when a rope (hawser) was all you took climbing. Love it all, apart from the walk ins!

Best Climbing Experience
Getting back to the bunkhouse after 19 hours on the Ben! Seeing beginners faces when they get on ice for the first time. Not falling off whilst soloing Great Gully on the Buckle. Getting first E4. Scrambling on Striding Edge with my 8 year old son.
