I enjoy most forms of climbing, but I guess my best style would be a long single-day trad route in the mountains, preferably at E2 or E3. Other sports include running and skiing (when I live somewhere where there is snow!) I'm also a historian, and just finished my PhD on rambling and mountaineering in England and Germany between 1890 and 1914.

Best Climbing Experience
Either Central Pillar on Esk Buttress on a perfect day, with no-one else around, and a great partner; Or The Moon and Kalahari on Gogarth on the same day...
