I live in North Wales very close to Llanrwst and Betws y Coed and I enjoy climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking (as I only live 15 minutes from the Marin Trail! How lucky am I!). I have two cocker spaniels who love the mountains. And I am a Summer ML. For the past 3 years I have been suffering from lower back pain which has now been diagnosed so I can now get it fixed, fingers crossed. I need to try and get out climbing more!! Oh and I want to learn to kayak, surf, snowboard and ski :0) and possibly cave if my OH can persuade me enough! And I would like to do more alpine routes and possibly some routes in the greater ranges at some point.

Summiting on Kilimanjaro after alot of people didn't think that I would do it. Going to the Alps and doing my first proper alpine route without a guide. Doing my first multipitch climb on Amphitheatre Butress.
