Mainly into solo winter climbing and being alone on big mountaineering routes in Scotland.
Based in Glencoe since April 2009 and am out climbing, walking or running in the Glen several times a week - don't hesitate to email for climbing or winter conditions updates.
Best Climbing Experience
Winter solos of Taxus (III***), Archie's Ridge (III,4*), Staghorn Gully (III***), Devil's Rib (III*), Castle Ridge (III**), Stairway to Heaven (III*).
Soloing many of Scotland's great mountain routes, NE Buttress, East Buttress Beinn Eighe, NE Ridge Aonach Beag, Great Ridge of Garbh Bheinn, Clach Glas-Blaven Traverse, Pinnacle Ridge of Sgurr nan Gillean etc.
Living and winter climbing in Glencoe during the unforgettable 2009/2010 Scottish winter season. You had to be there.
Perfect sunny days on 4000m Alpine peaks.
Spring days in the Cuillin.
