Best Climbing Experience
Topping out on the FA of the Dragon's Horns West Face after 5/6 days on the wall counts as one of my better moments in climbing. Thanks goes to the BMC, Wilderness Lectures, Welsh Sport's Association, Care Plus, Beast Products and DMM for their awesome support.
Three virgin summits in Kyrgyzstan, that was pretty good! Check out http://tinyurl.com/bujo4fj
Off to Greenland in the summer... www.greenland2012.com. The world is cool and people are kind.
Some fun mellow multi-pitch rope solos.
All the other virgin territory and plans awaiting me.

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm an obese man living in a skinny person's body... I only excercise so I can eat doughnuts afterwards... particularly Sainsbury jam doughnuts. I am also somewhat reclusive.
