Originally from Sweden; living and climbing in the UK for the last two decades or so. Finished my PhD in computer science one year late in '98. Now working as a software developer in Bath to fund my climbing habit.
Best Climbing Experience
So many to choose from! Pulling up on the summit of Stoer in blazing sunshine is up there. First lead on 'Right Angle' with a couple of playful seals watching me from the sea. Arriving at the top of Serenity Crack/Sons of Yesterday, totally spent after 9 rope lengths of crack. Finally sticking the finger lock on Goldenboy (V4) at the Buttermilks having the same day completed the Ironman Traverse. Finding jamming Zen on The File. Sending l'Angle Ben's at Isatis.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Grade disagreements. Ethics, esp. top-roping, should it be allowed or not?
Interests Outside Climbing
Cycling, running, kung-fu movies. 30+ years' skiing experience. Just back from a three-months' climbing/skiing around Europe. Now sadly back in gainful employment to pay the bills.

Anything Else We Should Know
Like the writings of Michael Ondaatje, Arturo Perez-Reverte, Umberto Eco, Milan Kundera, and modern science fiction from the likes of Iain M. Banks, William Gibson, Peter F. Hamilton, and older stuff from Heinlein, Dick, Clarke and Herbert. Film buff who believes that life's all great questions are answered in the movies.
