Originally from Yorkshire, i know rough it up here in Cumbria.
Love anything to do with just getting out and doing me stuff, whether that's fell walking or climbing it doesn't really matter.
Would like to think that i don't take life or myself too seriously, and will get into conversation with anyone who'll listen really!
Best Climbing Experience
Toughie...! One has to be climbing the old man of Hoy, love the feel of the Grit under my palms and still get back to the 'mother land' whenever I can. Numerous Alpine trips, and overseas trips, highlights include climbing in: Australia, NZ, Thailand, USA and Europe.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Don't really get involved with the discussion forums. Unless somebody has put something completely and utterly wrong about a topic.
Interests Outside Climbing
Mountaineering, MTB, Canoeing, fell running, and for something completely different I drum as a hobby and play chess.
About My Photography
I take lots of pictures but don't always download them to UKC. I enjoy taking pictures of my client groups that I work with and get enjoyment when they comment on the day and the pictures I have taken for them whilst they are doing an activity.
