Based in Bamford, I have the good fortune of being based close to some of the best rock in the UK. Whilst I love the gritstone, it is nice to get on something longer every once in a while, so throughout much of the Spring/Summer end up climbing elsewhere - either on mountain crag or sea cliff.

I began climbing whilst studying at Bangor University back in 2002, I then spent the following 10 years based in Wales working my way up through the ranks of Pete's Eats, Joe Brown's and DMM. After a brief stint working at the BMC I was inspired to begin volunteering for the organisation and was recently voted in as Chairman of the BMC Peak Area.

Best Climbing Experience
Two moments in particular stand out: topping out of El Cap after completing The Shield with Alex Haslehurst and summiting the North Face of the Eiger via the 1938 Route with Jack Geldard. Both represented things that I never thought I would (or could) do when I first started climbing.rnrnThat said, the end of a days climbing at Gogarth or Pembroke still take some beating...rn

About My Photography
Up until a few years ago the words 'point and click' would have summarised my photography quite nicely. In 2014 I invested in a Canon EOS M and this sparked a greater interest in photography/composition; however, it was not until 2015 when I bought a second hand Canon 5D MkII that I started to fully understand how to shoot manually and get even more involved.
