Started climbing with Southampton University Mountaineering Club and have never looked back. For me climbing is all about adventure, especially on sea cliffs and in the mountains. I'm a trad and DWS man, sport is OK for training but rarely cuts it at the adventurous level I want.
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.
