Originally from Scotland, but been in England since 1985 and now in London.
Solid and reliable lead up to VS and some HVS. Enjoy both single-pitch (I learned to climb on gritstone) or multi-pitch mountain routes. Most of all, perhaps, I enjoy Alpine mountaineering.
I've decided to try to do the Alps 4000ers as the main challenge for my 50's. Also, nearly finished all the Munros in full winter conditions.
Retired, so almost always free for climbing of one sort or another.
