I love trad climbing, winter mountaineering, alpine mountaineering, travelling, expeditions, a bit of bouldering, sport climbing, canyoning and caving too... anything with some excitement and the potential for miserable suffering.
I've moved to Norway just before the summer and it's been great so far. I'm just getting into the local climbing scene and starting to enjoy my first Winter here with a trip to Rjukan and local skiing.
Best Climbing Experience
Loads to choose from:
Lofoten, Lofoten, Lofoten... wild, beautiful and lovely hard climbing!
Morocco climbing Ounakrim and Ras in the High Atlas and the Pillar de Couchant in the Todra Gorge.
Red Edge on Esk Buttress in the Lakes.
Gouffre Berger in France with friends.
Muir-y-Newl in North Wales one of my first trad multipitches and the crag to ourselves.
Various Winter routes with friends in all different conditions. Various debauched parties, nights out in Sheffield and meals cooked by friends.
A recent trip to Sweden around Gotenburg sport climbing and bouldering
