I've been climbing on and off for more than fifty years,never at a particularly high standard,I have climbed in Malta ,Scotland and the Alps but mostly on Mendip limestone, Avon, Cheddar etc.I am spending a lot more time climbing now than I ever thought I would in my sixties.I dont think I`ll ever stop enjoying exploring old Mendip Quarries. I am married with two children.I climb at about Severe to VS standard.

Location
Mendip Hills

Best Climbing Experience
1986 Findlay`s Gulch in Glencoe, just seemed to sum up everything I`d ever read or heard about Scottish winter climbing including "Hot Aches" finishing in the dark and a warm welcome in the Claccaigh.2013 completing the first ascent of Cardigano! at Sandford Quarry(Somerset) with Warmauri,proper Mendip climbing,new route loose rock, bloody cold but brilliant!
