Purely a trad climber in my youth but now seem to do mainly sports. Like to do trad from time to time to keep my head in order. Slowly working my way up the grades. Aim to get 8a this year - was to have been a few years ago but tore my calf muscle racing baggage trolleys at Barcelona airport - on the way to a sports climbing holiday - which put me back a bit!

Best Climbing Experience
On a ledge 13,000 ft up in the Alps, snowed in and saying to my partner, "at least we can have something to eat now" - only for him to say:
"I thought you had the food".
