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 - http://www.stevenfallon.co.uk/about-us.html

Best Climbing Experience
Not really sure - All low grade, but I enjoyed them. As I always say 'the last one', I suppose the Traverse of the Aiguille d'Entreves or the Domes de Miage, but a winter traverse of the E ridge of Musala in Bulgaria was quite special.
Full Cuillin Traverse 16.5hrs plus bivvy time. Quality weekend.

Anything Else We Should Know
Married, 3 kids, need to get WML assessment done, but time and money always seem to be against me.
