Living in London with my wife Helen and daughters Anya and Zoe.
Best Climbing Experience Bank Holiday in the Peaks where I lead almost nothing but HVS. Notable highlights were Great North Road, Toady's Wall and Valkyrie. Then I just got over excited and had a go at 3 Pebble Slab .. but had to be rescued. So near and yet so far.
