Living in Inverness, working for the Forestry Commission and hoping to get out onto the rock/snowed up rock/ice in summer and winter exploring all the amazing climbing opportunities Scotland has to offer.

Best Climbing Experience
Climbing Sunshine on Snowpatch Spire in the Bugaboos, Grand Wall on Squamish Chief, a winter ascent of the Direct Nose of Sgurr an Fhidhleir in NW Scotland and Citadel on the Shelter Stone.

Worst experience has to be falling from the crux on Marrowbone Jelly, Caley. Little did I know at the time that it would change my life.
