peebles boy

Journeyman Mountaineer rather than out and out climber, I prefer winter to summer, used to do a lot of rock stuff but got hooked by the variable conditions and adventures you can have in winter!!

Best Climbing Experience
Went to the alps and done some stuff once, that was quite good fun. Done Piggotts Route on Triple Buttress, Beinn Eighe, first climb in about a year, quite liked it. Spent a good few days chilling at Pexhill Quarry with beers and barbecues and good friends. Bouldering at Burbage always made me smile. Developing a little crag in the far north west was fun, if a little agricultural at times... Jack the Ripper on Stac Pollaidh; simply awesome route. Tried my hand at that mixed climbing business couple of winters ago, great fun!!! Ledge Route in great conditions was fantastic. Sron na Lairig (Glencoe) is a favourite.
Ehm, dunno, can you have a single favourite experience????

About My Photography
I like taking pictures wherever I go. Biking ain't great for that tho, you just want to keep yahooing, which is why I like walking/climbing etc - you get to slow the world down for a bit.

Anything Else We Should Know
I've got nice eyes. And a trusty white transit van for adventures that I semi-converted with blood, sweat and not a few tears...

Favourite Climbs
Something that makes me think about what shapes I need to throw with my body. Something within my ability...just. Something dry and not too warm not too cold. Something without midges or spiders or silverfish. Something with a nice square cut finish instead of a chossy pile of rock/soil/heather/gorse/sand/all of the above. Something not too high that it will scare me but high enough to warrant a rope.
