I'm trapped on a small windswept rock populated by 75,000 alchoholics (Douglas in the Isle of Man).

I get out climbing when I can, and partners hare available, though this last season haven't been out as much as I should have. Am also into Road + Mtn biking and Fell Running. Anything outdoors and active really.

Best Climbing Experience
Climbing at the Chasms in the Isle of Man, one day after work, and only coming off at 10:00 Pm, as it was getting dark, and seeing the lights across Port St Mary bay. It was beautiful, and a fitting end to a great day. Thanks Ed :-)

Also climbing on Saturday 14th. Got up at 6:30AM had a brief walk, then went for a climb down the chasms, a very rewarding and educational day. Thanks Dave. :-)

I'll take an interest in most things, try and keep an open mind and always open to something new. Do a lot of Mountain + Road Biking and Fell Running at the moment.

Am involved with a Mines Exploration group, getting down a few damp, cramped tunnels We also built the 3rd largest waterwheel in the world.. http://www.snaefellwheel.com/

Want to take up Kayaking when I've got enough money and time. Love anything outdoors,not including dogging and piking though!!!!
