Been climbing for about 5 years years now, either inside at Calshot/Reading or in the great outdoors at Swanage/Portland. Busy trying to convert the 6c I can climb indoors to something close outside, happy to lead up to HVS trad, second to E2 depending on steepness!

Best Climbing Experience
1. Getting nicely sunburnt at Portland the day after finishing my engineering finals
2. Waking up to a cracking sunrise at Pavey Ark in Langdale
3. Getting to the top of Finale Groove without falling off (first experience of Boulder Ruckle)
