Owen W-G

H'some, 30-something, scorpio, 6', sometime-moustached half-Welsh southern softie, wall-bred former fair weather weekend warrior now family man constantly scoping for any opportunity to get out, shameless bagger of soft extremes with penchant for a 3 star classic, weak bolt clipper and non-boulderer, ethically sound, city bound, injury prone, easily scared, reacts badly to failure, enjoys grit but psyched for seacliffs, novice in the mountains, eager to explore the SW, Pembroke, Lakes, N Wales, always keen to climb in new places and with new people.
