35 year old single male living on the edge of Morecambe Bay.Did lots of climbing while school age then lost my climbing partner and didnt get back into climbing until this summer.Allways been out in the fells though painting them so now i combine the two.Out every weekend doing something & if not out at the Wall.Hoping to become a full time artist then i can climb all day and paint in the evenings or when its wet.
