Was a mad-keen Munro bagger, well into second round by default rather than desire. Now a steady climber, at low grades. Doing more and more as I get older, and enjoying it. Particularly enjoy the Alps and the Dolomites, VF's and the easier end of the 4000ers.
Freelance SML, Winter assessment planned '14/'15. Mail me if you need a leader, especially in the Scottish mountains. Currently working for Steven Fallon Mountain Guides -

Best Climbing Experience
Not really sure - All low grade, but I enjoyed them. Curved Ridge will always be a favourite, as well as Agag's Groove. The Clach Glas was absorbing, and Pinnacle Ridge is always good. The Ben Ridges. Grooved Arete on Tryfan. First decent winter leads, and trips to Skye in perfect conditions, on classic routes
The Cosmiques Arete again, this time in a much better style, after lusting after it for 15 years.
Oh, and a winter traverse of the E ridge of Musala in Bulgaria was quite special.
Full Cuillin Traverse 16.5hrs plus bivvy time. Quality weekend.
