Jack Shepherd

I am a recent graduate and the proud owner of a BEng in Mechanical Engineering and an MSc in Digital Creativity!! I studied for three years at Sheffield University and then a year at Strathclyde University in Glasgow! I now have a job that is starting sometime after the Summer in London but have six months of living in the Lake District until then!

Outside of climbing I have a load of interests (most of which seem to cost me loads of money) such as snowboarding, surfing, walking, music, sailing and travelling to name but a few! I have done a few wilderness rafting and canoeing expeditions in Scandinavia and Russia too which were pretty amazing!!

I started climbing waaaaay back but when we had foot and mouth in the Lake District I couldn't really get out much and didn't manage to climb regularly whilst at university... I have since got involved again though and am loving it! Totally lost all the strength and stamina I used to have, and am sure I would get ruined by my 16 year old self!!

I am always up for climbing in the Lake District and further afield and as everyone I used to know who climbed has either given up or moved away if you are stuck for a partner give me a shout! I have all the necessary climbing paraphernalia and usually a car!! Email: shepherdjack77@hotmail.com!
