Ian was an experienced climber and was emerging as a talented Alpinist. He had a bright future ahead of him and was about to start a Geography degree at Bangor University this September.
His eternal optimism and complete lack of ego will be a great loss to the climbing community.
Ian will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
Thanks Ian for the last two weeks of great climbing and company out in Cham.
