Started climbing in 1974 in North Wales. First redpoints of sport routes in 1987. Moved out to the south of France in 1999. I prefer going to new areas and having new challenges. My weakness is I get easily bored trying the same route for too long.

I am still hopelessly (and very happily) addicted to climbing!
