I've been climbing for 42 years and started in Northumberland which I still rate as the best.Nowadays I prefer getting abroad for sun and sport routes but I still enjoy bouldering and trad climbing when I can get to new venues. I'm a keen photographer and love snapping as well as climbing when on the rock.

Location
Ashbourne Derbyshire

Best Climbing Experience
Too many great ones to say really.Mountaineering wise climbing the Matterhorn donkeys years ago.Ticking lots of Hard and Extreme rock routes and the most memorable sports climb ever,Trella, before some idiot pulled the stal off!Climbing is three things to me ,where you are,what your doing and who you're with.Get all three right and that's the best.
