Ian Jones

Started climbing on Merseyside sandstone and Snowdonia. Spent years resident in Sheffield which is a pig sty. Very bored with The Peak District. Love Scottish climbing.
Like to quaff real ales, scoff good grub and listen to proper music (DOORS, Deep Purple, Joy Division, Zappa, Stones, Skynyrd, Stone Temple Pilots, Audioslave...you get the idea..)
Liverpool fan, been to Fortress Anfield stacks of times.
Have been very lazy for years but now revitalized and psyched for real rock. 2010 is my first winter season. Possibly the worst boulderer in Scotland. Utterly useless at that thuggish sports climbing thing.
