still scraping a living climbing guide/instructor after years of hell in the army. traveling the planet climbing like a loner with no direction in life and showing no signs of giving up and joining the rat race yet... and smoking way to much ..... currently working for ChinaClimb in yangshuo for past 5 years been clippimg bolts, setting new routes and avoiding anything to do with real work
can be found mostly crying at shiny things in gear shops that i cant afford, up a crag or drunk on rice wine .
