Sadly work means I don't get to climb as often as I used to but I still manage to get out once or twice a month. Often Stanage due to being in London but would like to explore Swanage. Very much enjoy the variety you get in the Lakes.

I've never much cared for sport climbing, but trad gives me a wonderful sense of escapism. When i'm climbing something tricky (or soloing), the concentration and clarity of mind I achieve is something I cannot attain any other way. Right at that moment its just me, the rock and my next move.

When we live in such a fast paced world with the stresses of work and technology barking at us all day and all night, this is nirvana.

About My Photography
Videography, would love to film some climbs outdoors at some point. That probably involves lugging my gear up a hill though. I have recently started taking aerial photography and videos from a UAV plane I have built which I intend to take to some crags before the season is out.

Favourite Climbs
Ones where it all goes a bit wrong. It starts to get tricky
you start to get tired and you look down to see most of your runners have come out. That's when things get exciting.
