kean

Originally from the UK, I moved to Italy in 1995 to climb and teach English (in that order!). I now live on the southern edge of the Italian Dolomites. I do all types of climbing, but my biggest passions are long moderate mixed routes and ski-mountaineering. I would be happy to meet and climb with anybody who heads this way or if you need any info..
