A true alpine and winter climbing addict. Ice climbing is my calling... Not your average cancer rat, too much psyche to sit still!

Location
Wherever my feet/van take me.

Best Climbing Experience
Many, many amazing routes to remember! Climbing solo through the night on a new route in the Tien Shan is pretty memorable. Chasing the purple 'night line' and watching a massive shooting star heading towards China were sadly unphotogenic. But reaching the summit in time for the sunrise over Kyzyl Asker whilst in the shadow of Pik Dankova, will stay with me for a good long while.
