Currently focussed on rock-climbing, trying to push the grade and train a bit harder for the coming summer season. I like jamming cracks and thrutchy climbing :-) Also a keen ski-tourer and have some mountaineering experience.

Best Climbing Experience
Fighting to make just one more move all the way up Spiderman at Joshua Tree, expecting to fall off all the way, and finally finding myself on top totally shattered but happy.
