Happiest scurrying around the North West of Scotland and the Isles. But quite partial also to the odd 'dirty weekend' away on an esoteric bit of the Culm coast. Currently exiled to the Western Balkans and hoping to do a bit of local exploring.

Best Climbing Experience
Pulling pulks over Arctic sea-ice toward unclimbed peaks on islands emerging from the flat white. New routeing on icefalls in the deep winter of the Cauacasus. Or just looking over the Minch and islands from a belay ledge on a warm summer evening: Too many to mention (or remember for that matter).

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Not big on more 'animated' UKC 'discussions' but I do enjoy a well mannered exchange of views or useful information on out-of-the-way, esoteric and adventurous venues.

Interests Outside Climbing
A bit of wild trout fly-fishing out in the hill lochs, hiking, travelling and camping. Reading and music (with a 80s-90s indie rock bent). Play some tennis and - more rarely - football and squash also on occasion.

About My Photography
Mostly amateurish landscape stuff with digital compacts. With sadness I eventually disposed of the old SLR and slide film that used to come out for expedition work.
