Originally from the flat plains of Hertforshire before getting into climbing during degree and PhD in Leeds. I moved to the continent in 2002, which was/is great for work and life in general but not for climbing as first flatness of Berlin and more recently Flanders. Still enjoy bouldering, routes and holidays in the mountains when the work and travel allow.
