I love all sorts of exploratory cragging and sea-cliff climbing. Not working towards MIA, not ticking Hard Rock, and no great desire for classic multi-pitch in the mountains. Other than that psyched for most things!

Very keen for long weekends to North/Mid Wales or longer trips to Pembroke North and Devon / Cornwall. In the meantime some Yorkshire lime for early season mileage...

I have car, rack, guides, and good knowledge of most areas. I lead around E2-ish, I'm happy to abseil for gear if needed, second easier routes, and belay on harder ones.

I've had extensive DVT clots in my upper legs since 2009, so have restricted blood flow and about 25% of my previous leg fitness. This means I struggle to walk uphill, but aside from that I still climb as much as possible :).

Now on that bloody Facebook thing, solely to meet friends and organise climbing: http://www.facebook.com/Fiend.in.England

About My Photography
Mostly celebrating my climbing, sometimes showing less documented routes/crags. Photos are usually taken by other people, so anyone spuriously downvoting photos is dissing them not me - i.e. don't bother.
