I mainly hillwalk, but happily climbed, too. A busted right knee has pretty much killed the climbing, now. I just don't trust it.
I'm best known here, from the RT meets at the Clachaig. I've now acquired a digital SLR, and kittens. An interesting combination. I need a bigger hard drive!
Especially as Vlad and I are training the new Joe Brown?
Best Climbing Experience
Any day spent with friends, that ends with a smile. Wine & BBQ help!
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Gear and it's uses. Preferably the one's the designer didn't think of.
Interests Outside Climbing
Too many to mention. Obsessed with photography and motorsport at one time. Now I climb... Back into photography. 35mm B&W is the new way. Until I bought an E1 digi SLR. Now I can't be bothered with the darkroom... Hold the Phone... Bronicas are HOW cheap? OK, I've now resurrected the enlarger, and bought another E1, oh, and replaced the OM4 I sold...
About My Photography
Now gone digital with an Olympus E1, and 11-22, 14-54 + 50-200 lenses.
However, I've still got my OM1s, and OM4, plus umpteen Zuiko prime lenses.
I major in B&W, but I like colour too.
Some stuff now online, at:
I'm also on flickr.
I bought, then sold a pile of nice Nikon gear.
Still got the E-1 from 10 years ago.
Recently bought a Fuji X thingy with a couple of lenses. Small, and light. I like it.

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm now MARRIED to Vlad, with a 2 year old Joe, and I'm happy as...
The honeymoon was Hong Kong (fabulous) and New Zealand (I didn't want to come home...)
Joe is now NINE. And I haven't been here for a while. I may need to change the user name to Tim the WHITE nowadays.
