Climbing is my life. Sport, trad, soloing, single and multipitch. Always single day routes and always looking for the next great line and the next grade.
Trad experience includes time in Yosemite, Dolomites, Alps, Anti-Atlas, Arapiles, Oz Grampians, Tasmania, Scotland and Wales.
Sport experience in loads of European places and at Mt Arapiles.
Tried Scottish winter climbing but wasn't enough of a massochist to enjoy it.
Can't get psyched for bouldering.

Best Climbing Experience Many when I was younger. I had many family holidays to mountaineer (not hard technical climbing) in Austria when I was in primary and secondary school.
Mountain guides taking pictures of my 5 year old sister as she climbed onto the top of the Piz Buin (3312m) was pretty cool!
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic Anything where I can make a useful contribution
Interests Outside Climbing [cough] online gaming [cough]
Being outdoors, whether its walking, climbing or just getting some air keeps me going.
I have done a lot of skiing and mountain biking in the past but don't really do much of either atm due to climbing addiction.
About My Photography My aspiration is limited by ability :P
Anything Else We Should Know I bought a couple of WC zeros that were on special offer for less than half price and trust them so little I don't even take them on most of my leads (hows that for a waste of money :oS).
