Outdoor lovin, keen on climbing, not as dedicated as could be but competent and fair experienced mountaineer.
Let's update this to 'keep on wanting, half, to get a weekend away but then feel less prepared/commited than I should be, so as interested now in some house bouldering or meeting some folk to involve climbing in my general fitness and aims which are now triathlon performance targets'
Like to get about and share the good times.
I enjoy the personal things in life,a long day and night out just takes you to the most beautiful places.
I used to carry a lot of kit. Then I carried a lot of kit.

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm fair short of trips to the Alps. Now even more fair short of trips to the Alps and will climb the famous Grandes Jorasses one day, Walker Spur I hope, also the Peuterey Ridge, but not sure how to avoid the rockfall sections off the Noire. Objective danger is quite low on my list of priorities however necessary to the spirit of the original line. Oh not forgetting Gran Capitan, so nearly tried once before if Steve had only brought along the second rope. A sign perhaps.
