Best Climbing Experience
Deep water soloing in Mallorca, doing my first outdoor sports routes in the sunshine in Portugal and being terrified on ice climbs in Rjukan. Getting spanked by 4a problems and 7 year olds in Font! Christmas day, climbing in the sunshine in Spain.
I like seeing new places and exploring. I'd rather climb easy routes and enjoy it than push my grades and spend a whole day terrified.

About My Photography
It's a bit rubbish, I'm more into collecting back porn than getting great climbing shots.

Anything Else We Should Know
I can second a good bit harder than I lead, most days! Although that really wouldn't be hard at the moment. I've not been doing much leading of late and as a result I'm struggling a bit with the mental side of it and extreme cases of The Fear, currently only really happy to lead up to S, although I'd like to improve that.
I'm currently happiest seconding HVS/E1 level as it doesn't stretch me too much and I can enjoy the climbing rather than spending all my time worried about falling off.

I like quarries and sea cliffs
Several times a week
In the UK & Europe
I'm rather partial to quarries perhaps because I don't have to walk my lazy ass very far to climb in most of them... I also love love love sea cliffs and any climbing near the water.
I like slabs because
how hard can a slab be? Fingery balancey climbing seems to suit me better. I'm not one for anything too thrutchy or strenous although I have my moments generally brought about by terror and panic.
