Not sure where to start or where to finish. Left my (retrospectively) kind of awesome job working for GB Cycling in September 2012 to be my own person for a while, so now travelling around UK, Europe in a campervan with bikes, boots & climbing stuff. Life is too short to sit on my arse so whatever options appear I hit them full on. Started climbing in March 2006, and took it like a duck to water. Suffer from over enthusiasm and passion for virtually everything I attempt, all or nothing and somewhat scary with it. Be warned.
Spreading myself thin (that would be a fine thing) as usual, splitting my focus between MTB, road bike, walking and climbing. I want to master the bunny hop, while trying to curb the desire to do everything ... world domination is obviously my ultimate goal.
Sea stacks are now calling, and I really need to get some more lead experience under my belt ... and friends are bullying me into contemplating winter climbing ...
And I have a well hidden spiritual side. Check out my weblog thingy link jobby.
Best Climbing Experience
Funnily enough best experience was also an out and out failure. A bolted cave with the idea being to somehow edge along the top of the damn thing reaching from bolt to bolt. Couldn't do it but it was hilarious trying!

Interests Outside Climbing
Many interests outside climbing. Mountain biking, walking, scrambling, whatever the latest fad is (brief skirmish with kayaking, qualified chainsaw operator etc. etc. etc.. Performance Poetry. General do gooding. You get the picture
