pottsworth

Currently at uni studying engineering, and living in Leamington. Trying to get out climbing as often as possible, but currently not having as much success as I would like.

I'm SPA assessed, and am always looking for work to help pay uni bills. I also work as a sound engineer and lighting designer

Best Climbing Experience
Climbing in the ariege region of the south of france. Doing awsome routes, in lovely wether, with great people, and in great settings.
3 Days around the roaches with good friends, and perfect weather, including the deserted back forest
A 7 day hut-hut route through the austrian alps
Via ferrata and slab climbing around the stunning Lake Guarda

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Use of equipment, clever ropework tricks etc.
New / clever bits of gear. Things like tricams that are just a really neat idea / really nicely engineered.
