Keen youth. (Once upon a time)
Enduring appreciation for the subtle complexities of gritstone. (How the hell does that work?)
Recently broke the E5 barrier. (Without the need for medical intervention)
Always on the lookout for new climbing partners. (With small teams on obscure crags, rather than bus loads of top-ropers at Stanage)
Love a bit of new routing. (Ask me nicely and I might even write them up)
