I have a background in hillwalking and general mountaineering since I was a kid, in my late teens and early twenties my attention was focused on being an athlete and I competed for the GB Under 23 team over 1500m as well as earning a sports scholarship to the states. Now I am trying to get back into mountaineering more seriously. I have done some grade 1 and 2 winter climbs as well as completing scrambles up to grade 3, all solo.

I am not motivated by scaling a very difficult rock face near the side of a road, but climbing longer routes requiring both technical input, navigation and physical endurance.

Myself and a friend are both at the same level and intend to go on a winter course to be taught the basics of rope work to safeguard stuff as we move onto harder climbing/scrambling.

Best Climbing Experience
My best climbing experience was a winter attempt on Mount Meeker in Colorado, we turned back 500ft short of the summit @ 13,400ft due to high winds and worries of not returning before nightfall.

I also did a winter crossing of Crib Goch which scared me, but gives me a great sense of achievement.
