Martin Thomas

I've been climbing since I was 16 or 17 and have climbed in the North West of England, North Wales, Pembroke, the Lake District, Dorset and Yorkshire, with a few trips to France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland and Germany thrown in for good measure. I am married with three children, so my climbing has been curtailed a little bit over the last ten years, but I still try to get to the wall and (mostly) sport climb (when the weather allows). I enjoy bouldering as well and try to get out on the grit when I can.

[only worked it out with advice from the late John Tout RIP]; Gritsone climbing in Derbyshire- Moyer's Buttress at Gardom's (best route I've done on the Eastern Edges); Vector at Tremadog in North Wales; Grimsel Pass (Switzerland) granite slab climbing with Steve Roberts is particularly memorable!; Redpointing Obsession at Malham.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Why is that when you cross the border from Lancashire into Yorkshire the crags turn from grim and dirty quarries into brilliant majestic crags?

About My Photography
An area of weakness, I am ashamed to say. I keep promising myself that I will take some good pictures this year!
