Neil Watson

Found this quote amusing "I climb just as hard as anyone. I just do it on easier routes."

Starting out at a late age. Lucky enough to have been introduced by a VERY keen S Welshman.
I just enjoy being in the hills and an ideal day for me would be a V. Diff multipitch, which I haven't been fortunate enough to have done yet. I have been slowly building up to this since 2009. I started trad. lead climbing early 2012 and have done most of the climbs on Tryfan Bach and most of the V. Diffs on Holyhead mountain and just getting brave enough to go Severe. N Wales holds a great attraction for me but not averse to other areas.

I've done a weeks advanced scrambling course in 2010 at PyB and a weeks Winter Mountain Skills at Glenmore in early 2012.
