Primarily a caver - but then got into climbing quite late. Love the outdoors and the challenges it throws up at times.
Haven't done much abroad but plan to do so when I retire (God willing).
Now retired(semi) and managed to get to the Himalayas a couple of times (Everest & Annapurna) - highly recommended !!
Best Climbing Experience
My first winter lead, and not falling off !
Topping out after doing Hadrians wall direct (awesome)
