datoon

Got my serious trad head on about 5 years ago, and am making my way slowly through the extreme grades!!! I'm generally the 1 with funky pants on at the crag and bright clothes!!!

However, I started as a young 1 (maybe under 10?) when my dad dragged me up stuff!!!

I'm a member of the Lancashire Mountaineering Club as well, and up keep there website on a regular basis for my sins!!!

Best Climbing Experience
Tough one, I've had quite a few. I remember climbing in America when I was quite young about 13/14, we did a route called Elephant's Trunk, but the whole situation of wild camping and not being in contact with any where else was brillant. You had to take a 30 minute speed boat, then a hike for about 1 hr to this lake. It was beautiful, peaceful and quiet... However, each trip or venture to a new place can have similar effects...

Lofoten is a must go as well, such a beautiful place to climb - add the climbing around Tromso too...

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Climbing??!! I think I'm more of a doer then a talker...

Although training and how to poo big walling are quite popular...
