Just entered the world of real work as an Engineer near York. Massively miss the adventurous years I had at Uni and the year of travelling/climbing that followed. Aspire to retire before 2015 to have another go and be more adventurous.

Love the grit when I've been climbing on it a lot. Despise it when im out of practice.

Discovered the beauty and adventure a Scottish summer during 2013's months of glory. I hope we get another one.

Have had two climbing trips to the US and Canada and loved the scene over there. Seemed more relaxed and less stigmatism over ethics, just have fun.

Have a Canon G15 and go through bouts of enthusiasm until I realise that it eats into climbing time.
