Weekdays, a chemistry PhD student.
Increasingly a cycling obsessive rather than a climber, but always love to get to the mountains, even if just for a walk.
Trad in the peak when visiting my parents, winter and alpine whenever I get the chance, indoor bouldering when I'm not too busy! Pretty lapsed of late
Best Climbing Experience
Getting back to the Argentiere hut having done the Y Couloir on the Aig. d'Argentiere.
Standing on the Col du Tour watching the sunrise over Switzerland, glaciers shining gold and orange, and cloud inversions in all the valleys; followed by an ascent of the North face of the Tete Blanche and over an hour spent on the summit of the Petite Fourche.
Soloing & leading easy welsh winter routes in amazing conditions over two days in Feb 2013.
Reaching the summit of Mont Blanc du Tacul summer 2012 after a dash from the first lift.
Crossing the fence at the end of the Cosmiques Arete.
Climbing at Froggatt until after sunset with friends, one day in september 2012.
Those in no particular order, and lots more!
Interests Outside Climbing
Cycling. Music. Skiing.
Reading about expeditions to 8000m peaks/ any mountain lit.- though this probably isn't 'outside climbing'.
