I'm Mel, I climb and I also make stuff. I love camping and getting away from it all.
Best Climbing Experience
Best- Most of it! I love climbing, I love introducing new people to climbing, showing them how to belay, how to lead, how to set up, watching them get scared and how happy they are when they have conquered their first VS or whatever, I love organising trips, running clubs, getting everyone together and having a great time. Love it.
Worst- Half way up the second pitch, of some climb, somewhere in Wales, getting to the hardest point, no holds, no protection, and my second shouting up to tell me that all of my gear had just fallen out. I don't think anything would have fit into the inverted nipples that were in front of me, so I just held a nut so it was looking at the rock, hoping the nut would understand what it was meant to do if the rain got heavier and I was washed off my tiny 4 blades of grass which I was clinging too with the insides of my feet.

About My Photography
I take some photos, not great, but I don't want a fancy camera as I dropped the last one off the top of a cliff. Oops.
