Trad climber at heart but will take what I can get at the moment. Sport and bouldering are only training, soloing is good fun and winter climbing is both amazing and frustrating.

Best Climbing Experience
Scratching my way up Belhaven in 2009 in very poor conditions, was totally scared and 100% committed. Topping out was a great feeling to be alive.

Climbing Repentance Super in Cogne, realizing that there was such thing as overhanging ice, and I had to learn very quickly how to climb it.

Astral highway with no one else up there, topping out with two great mates in ginners weather. Probably the best winter route i've had in the UK, until the next one of course......

Point Five gully in early (dec 2008) when there was no one at all on the ben, the route was fat and steep but brilliant. Everything it lived up to.

Flashing Resurrection on the Cromlech after it had built up a massive reputation. It's not as hard as people say, so get on it.

Climbing Great Wall with Patch, late on in the season. The weather was awesome and cloggy was quiet. Reaching the belay in the middle of the wall was great, topping out was even better.

Any day on Gogarth is a good day, it IS the best crag in Britain.

Getting Right Wall done in 2011 after i muffed it in 2010. The biggest milestone in my climbing so far.

Warpath on Rhoscolyn is a great hidden gem.

Frendo Spur in a 7hr single push with Lee in 2010. Great conditions, perfect route.

Skiing the Haute route in March 2012 after only 6 days on ski's. Perfect weather and conditions.
