Jack Geldard - UKC Chief Editor

jackgeldard.com

I'm the Chief Editor of UKClimbing.com. This role sees me managing the content on the site, liaising with advertisers, moderating forums, updating databases, emailing lots of different people and occasionally writing fun climbing articles!

I like all types of climbing, and enjoy trying out new things and new challenges. I also enjoy the places climbing takes me and I think that the people you can meet through climbing are what make it so special.

I've climbed all over the world, from bouldering to Himalayan climbing, and right now I guess my favourite styles are multipitch alpine sport climbing, and big adventurous mountain / alpine routes.

Best Climbing Experience
Overall some of my favourite experiences are: Onsighting Riviere Pourpre with Dave and Juha, climbing Western Gully in perfect conditions again with Juha, climbing in the Alps with Aide, too many teenage gritstone epics to mention, climbing Magic Line in Bregalia with Aide many years ago, finally ticking Out of Africa in Madagascar with Fat Boy, a Scottish road trip with Ed, Climbing the North Face of the Eiger in Winter with Rob, a week of perfect sport climbing with Jude... and many others.

Interests Outside Climbing
Beer (German kellerbier ideally, or bottled Landlord will do, and I'll have it slightly chilled please), Gin and Tonic (a tall glass, heavy on the lime, Bombay Sapphire preferred), Campari (Spritz please, with a slice of orange and lots of ice), Running (occasionally, but not usually straight after Campari), weights (even more occasionally), reading (books, newspapers, etc), other stuff.

About My Photography
I like taking panoramic photos of mountains and cliffs. My favourite photos are those showing lines and atmosphere of routes, or the emotion of a climber.
