Chronically psyched. Currently based in Bristol.
Alpinism, expeditions, winter climbing and long mountain trad routes.
Best Climbing Experience
Frendo Spur in a single 9 hour push.
Managing not to die on the descent of the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey.
Every move of Sticil Face, soaking up the incredible Shelterstone atmosphere.
Getting buzzed by an Apache helicopter on the crux of Gargoyle Wall on a bluebird day on the Ben.
Agag's Groove in winter - an inspirational route that I couldn't quite believe I'd managed to do. Shame we epic'd on the descent. Getting back to my London apartment at 5:30 Monday morning, grabbing a shower and heading straight to work was one of the grimmer parts of my climbing career.
2 weeks of endless sun-soaked granite corners and scary, run-out slabs in Lofoten.
