Ever since a young age I have tried most outdoor/extreme sports but finally settled on climbing. I find climbing the most rewarding sport I have ever done and it has also taken me to some of the most beautiful places in the World. I started climbing at school in the Lancashire quarries and became totally obsessed. Climbing was the main driving factor for me to go to university in Bangor, North Wales. I finished my degree and have just returned from a six month climbing trip around the world where I visited Hampi (India), Krabi (Thailand), Australia, Castle Hill (NZ), and North America and Canada.
Best Climbing Experience It is hard to pick my best climbing experience especially since my round the world climbing trip. Some have been easy days climbing such as when I climbed Gogarth with my mate Tom on a hot sunny day. Other memorable moments are when I have pushed to my limit and only just made it on route such as when I topped out on Ressurection. Other memorable days have just been bouldering around my favourite place, The Llanberis pass.
