Lardy punter who tries hard to be a prolific lardy punter. I don't climb hard, never did and never will but insist on having fun. I'm a bit OCD with my ticking and am trying to work my way through lots of lists and have a long term plan to tick the Peak upto HVS. A member of Edale MRT, which makes life interesting and unpredictable and leaves me with no illusions about what a bad gravity day will do to your innards. Day job for an oil company.
