Live to climb but the body thinks otherwise. I am middle aged but may well be extremely old before I accept this. I love climbing and will help anybody who wants to take to this silly pass-time. I recently got my dream job in the lake district, and am so grateful and happy to have this and a fab wife who also likes to climb, though if you hear threats to life while out on the crags, it might well be my good lady wife. She usually cools off by the time she reaches the top!!

Hardest probably Bitter Oasis, though soloing the Midi-Plan traverse was spiritual.

About My Photography
Brother was a professional who lost his life too early. My photo's are rubbish by comparison, but in the spirit of his excellent guidance years ago, I persevere, you never know when that shot is waiting for you.
