All round climbing bum living in Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains.
Sea cliffs , alpine , mixed ,ice , bouldering...there all amazing... but not a fan of aid or drytooling!....as they just feel a bit dirty!
Also trying to get my mind around the polish language!..at least v12!..
Can normally be found wondering the woods around Zakopane in search of new bouldering potential... so far found sod all... but i live in hope.
