(SUMMER 2019 UPDATE - currently inactive due to family care duties.)
Started climbing in 1996 after usual hill walking then scrambling apprenticeship. Lead up to MVS on a good day (second VS/HVS) and used to second Grade 1V in winter, but not winter climbed for a few years. Steady temperament and GSOH and I've never dropped anyone yet.

Location

Use a Canon Powershot 540 and would recommend it as a good intro digicam. Still finding my way around a dSLR with a Nikon D40.

Anything Else We Should Know
Sub VS leader and very dependable, attentive belayer. Second up to VS/easy HVS. Always happy to pick up new ideas if you know a better way of doing things. Swear a lot while climbing and always try to end a crag day with a pint in the pub. Took early retirement in 2011, so prefer to climb weekdays to leave the weekends free for the workers. Mainly climb in Lakes but always on the look out for occasional partners for North Wales to whittle down my wish list there.
Keep fit with conservation work, voluntary dry stone walling for the National Trust and hedgelaying in winter.
*****UPDATE SUMMER 2016 -CURRENTLY VERY RESTRICTED CHANCE TO CLIMB BECAUSE OF CARE COMMITMENTS ****
