Started climbing with Southampton University Mountaineering Club in 2008 and have never looked back. Has definitely become an addiction and can't imagine what I used to do before I discovered the sport.
For me climbing is all about adventure, especially on sea cliffs and in the mountains. I prefer Trad and DWS, but love all climbing really.
Bit of a "ticker" and I love a good line. Sitting down with a guidebook and a pen looking at what routes there are to do next is one of life's little enjoyments.

Location
Winterborne Kingston

Best Climbing Experience
Multi pitching in the Lakes and Snowdonia
Onsighting Goose Creature, still no idea how I did the crux.
DWS along the Dorset coastline.
The exposure of A Dream of White Horses
The view at the top of Tremadog after doing so many classics there.
Sport climbing weeks in Costa Blanca, El Chorro and Mallorca
Failing to cleanly climb all of Moonraker, means I have to go back.
Climbing Sacre Coeur just before my calves gave out.
A fortnight on and around the Isle of Skye. Highlights were a day on the Cioch and the Cuillin Ridge.
