Still searching for the 48-hour day in order to fit all the things I'd like to do into it - eg family, work and play.
Frequently at Mile End wall.

Best Climbing Experience
On Keelhaul (E2 5c), a delicious slab climb at Bosherston Head, Pembroke. I was leading the crux when my belayer John Nolan yelled to me to look down. And there in the sea was a seal, watching it all with profound interest. Great.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Is the number of people wearing helmets who can toprope a classic slab in an afternoon greater or less than the number of angels who can dance on the head of a pin, and would the angels be as annoying?

Interests Outside Climbing
Family, computing, the oriental game of strategy called Go - which is very handy for negotiating with wife + 2 kids for weekends climbing. And music: Radiohead, Soul Coughing (magic!), Cake, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and um XTC and King Crimson. You don't have to like the last two, but Soul Coughing are obligatory.

Anything Else We Should Know
Slippery when wet. Do not feed yourself to the lions. Stand on the right. Keep out of reach of children or you'll get jam on your clothes.
