Former inhabitant of the wonderful City of Wakefield, now residing next to a bog in West Cumbria and loving it.
Haven't climbed for quite a while due to lack of climbing partners, lack of motivation and realisation that I'm never going to be any good at it.
Still can't bring myself to sell my gear though.
Currently trying to get to the level of fitness where fell running is more pleasure than pain..

Best Climbing Experience

About My Photography
I have a facinating collection of photos, mainly of peoples backsides on routes, or of empty landscapes a couple of seconds after a herd of wildebeest ran past.

Anything Else We Should Know
The smell of boiling cabbage is associated with demonic possession. And if not it should be.
I'm also nowhere near as curmudgeonly, unpleasant and sarcastic in real life as my internet persona, depending on which side of bed I got out of.
