Mark A Humphries

Ive been climbing for about eight years now and hope to continue until I'm old and grey (which doesnt feel too far off sometimes!) I love climbing in all its forms...trad, sport, winter, bouldering etc. I dont have a particular bias but do tend to focus on one style at certain periods if I'm trying to push my grade or working a route or problem.

Best Climbing Experience

I've had loads and try to draw something positive from even the worst days out. Feel lucky that I discovered climbing and all that its given me!

Interests Outside Climbing
I love music, mainly rock/metal, 60's/70's and am pretty much addicted to tattooing! When I'm having a bit of down time from climbing I like to get out mountain biking. Also really enjoy hill walking but there never seems enough free time to do it all!

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm a Scouser living in Manchester which, as a Liverpool fan, has been hard these last few years! I'm a Firefighter and as a result my shift pattern means that I'm often free during the week. I'm always on the look out for mid-week climbing partners so feel free to drop me a mail.
