Always been climbing through scambling around the Cornish cliffs and beaches. Learnt to lead when I became a student, and got hooked. Always trying to push myself, with a preference for cracks and safe pumpy climbing.
Location Cornwall or Durham
Best Climbing Experience Comes the Dervish, the Mau Mau, Pull my Daisy in a big day on slate; my first day on Cloggy; taking my first fall, or at least finding out from it that the system really does work!
Climbing my first E3 and E4 without a guidebook or even the grade - proof maybe that a lot of it is in the head.
