Former student at Leicester University, former president of the mountaineering club. Currently travelling in Australia. Complete slatehead but really I just love North Wales! Getting back into grit, and nice to be doing a bit of bouldering after dismissing it for years. Primarily focused on trad climbing but looking to do more sport climbing and bouldering as training for hard trad!


Best Climbing Experience
Spotting Silly Arete in the guidebook and obsessing about it for weeks before somehow doing it in perfect weather as well. Amazing climbing, an outrageous position and a good healthy dose of fear. Incredible!

or...doing Great Wall with a good mate, on a perfect day with just the right amount of wet holds to make it at the limit. The most intimidating start and the best belay location ever.
