David Dear

Bin walking in the hills since I was a teenager. Became a climbing enthusiast about 15 years ago. 2 seasons in the Alps. Because I teach piano now I won't do any serious climbing again, just walking and scrambling from now on. But it's always good to be in the mountains. Miss going to Scotland regularly like what I used to do!

Best Climbing Experience
Too many wonderful climbs to say, but mainly in Wales. Never led beyond HS, E no.s just food additives as far I'm concerned. Last climb I did was the sublime Mur i Niwl, seconding Steve Boote. Bonne chance!

About My Photography
I've enjoyed the Panasonic G1 for a few years but good fortune has allowed me to purchase a Canon 5D Mkii. A stunning camera that I'm still coming to terms with!
