I'm Mike.

Was the president of the University of Hertfordshire climbing club for two years running, and have been climbing for almost six years now. . Haven't had a chance to climb a lot of trad as home is Suffolk, but plan to remedy that over summer!

I ride mountain bikes, surf and also do a lot of walking too (which climber doesn't?)
I use to be a dreadlocked, adrenaline fuelled student, but am now a potential Navy pilot. Woohoo!

Best Climbing Experience
My first E2 at Wales, climbing an unprotected slab and getting a bit of leg shake when not quite able to grab the big crack at the top!

Or my first grit E2 - Icebreaker at Castle Naze - especially when the nut protecting the crux fell out!
