I am the Assistant Developer at UKC and the Android Developer for Rockfax.

I started climbing on my 7th birthday at my local climbing wall. After an extended break through my teens I came back to climbing when I started at university. My main passion is for climbing in Scotland, particularly mountain trad and winter climbing.

Location
Stirling
