Keen but essentially talentless. Try to do "an extreme" every year just to prove I'm not getting old but generally happy to just climb. Love long multipitch routes in beautiful places. Love/hate the Alps and greater ranges - beautiful and satisfying but I'm always scared. Ticking over at about HVS at the moment. Always happy to meet new people if they're safe climbers and friendly.
Best Climbing Experience Just a mosaic of great days out over the years really.
Perhaps the weekend I first climbed outdoors and led Robin Hood Buttress Right Hand. I only had one big hex and I'd used it at the bottom. Must have been awful for my belayer (thanks Richard) to watch as I wobbled up.
