Started climbing at 12 years old. Hen Cloud/Roaches. Then lakes for 2 years?
Based in Lichfield until 1989, then North Devon/ spent 6 years in Llanberis. 1997 moved to west coast of Scotland. Lived in Chamonix, Sheffield/Iceland and other seem to spend most of my time climbing choss in the desert...bouldering an exploring on Tiree. Recently got back into climbing, Scottish Mainland is new adventure at 47...HVS/E1 in May (not a bad start)...visited some grit Curbar/Froggat and still manage to climb E2/3 on repeated routes.(took 15 yrs to chase an old demon away on Froggatt)

Life is good...
