I am currently a newly qualified teacher working in Sheffield. I am keen to get out on the trad. and climb outdoors throughout the winter against the bouldering grain and plug some kit in.

Would be lovely to climb with new people both old and new. I am a green carless loser and am very poor with directions so I am always found catching a lift with some generous soul.I can normally be found in the Works in the evening at the moment going round and round and round....

Keen to get away for New Year and clip some bolts.

This new year I would love to climb in Pabay, take some great photos and do some writing...and maybe climb E5 ( ;

Best Climbing Experience
Leaving the crag with the rat nicely fed so he doesn't start complaining until at least Wednesday.

Any route where the concentration is so massive, the climbing so engrossing and a resolution so unlikely that you top out and have to lie down before arranging a belay.
