Best Climbing Experience
I love adventure climbing - by this, i mean climbing with one or more pitches thru mixed terrain. I find myself drawn towards 3d climbing- ie: moving around and thru obstacles on steep ground. That said, I hav'nt got much time 4 hanging belays !!!! if you have climbed ''mad hatters tea party' or 'across the universe' recently, you'll know what I mean.
I have been here 10 years so know my way around very well altho I've never been up anything harder than e4 .....

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Right now its Egotistical climbers who are just too obsessed with getting up 'their' grade. You know what I mean, people who spend hours inching up a route that's clearly too hard for them while ignoring other easier classics nearby deemed unworthy of their attention.
Also climbers who take themselves too seriously. IE: if you got up it and enjoyed yourself, and did'nt kill yerself in the process, i dont care how you did it ! There are more versions of the so-called 'on-sight' than there are of vegetarians, its more important to get out and enjoy yourself !
Incidentally, i'm all for bolting dangerous climbs too ! and replacing all those shitty pegs and tapes too- especially in swanage but fuck it, i'd do pembroke too !!!!!!!!!

Interests Outside Climbing
I live here in Pembs and love nothing more than being out and about around this fab coast. I like to go exploring the cliffs on the lookout for new lines. I prefer to do this on my own and like getting myself in and out of 'situations'.
I also get out and climb with a shunt when theres no partners around so I'm still waiting for my '127 hours' moment to arrive. Other than that, I get quite a bit of cycling done round here.

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm definately out for enjoyment above all else ...ie: i'd rather savour 3 or 4 quality lines than try to cram in as many e points as pos in a day...
& If the suns out, i'm more than happy to lie around for 1/2 hour or so in between climbs !
