Full time geophysicist, always trying to juggle climbing with other commitments! Obsessed would be an understatement! I enjoy the simple things in life, and I am ALWAYS planning the next trip, be it to the Peak District, or to El Capitan!
Best Climbing Experience Climbing the pinnacle at symonds yat for the first time with Dad! Onsighting the last pitch of Out of Africa, in Madagascar, 7a. Onsighting my first E5. Myself and JT doing our first E7 and E8 at Nesscliffe! Le Diedre Sud on the Quiquillon with Dad. Multipitch in Paklenica, Dolomites and Picos with Tom. La Demande... A week of perfect sunshine in the Dolomites with my Dad.
