Interests Outside Climbing
My daughter. Human Rights Law, peaty malts and rear-wheel drive. Making crowdie, wholemeal bread and blue-eyed brunettes. Arguing with Sheriffs. Arguing with more Sheriffs. Trying to nail crooked solicitors. Trying to tell the Crown Office their job.

About My Photography
Sometimes use single-use cameras in challenging conditions if i can get hold of them. Have managed to break a Fuji A345 and a A920 which were both excellent. Now have Nikon L30. Still have Olympus OM30 bodies and lenses but they don't often get an outing these days.

Anything Else We Should Know
I am an Engineer. To save time, let's just assume I'm right.

Not shy. Not well-tolerated by the stupid. Been known to have opinions. Will always be there if someone needs help.

One day I might get good at this: don't hold your breath.
