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.

White Slab on Cloggy -that lasso move! [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?
