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, encyclopedic knowledge of soft extremes south of the M62, 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.
