I've been climbing for as long as i can remember, but up until a few years ago was just plodding around on Severe's. I love all areas of climbing, the big mountain crag adventures, the short and nails boulder problems and the long and pumpy continental sport routes and of course (arguably my favourite) the view from the top. But there is only one think better than the feeling of getting to the top... The post cragging pint.
