Lucky enough to have been able to work and live in many varied places: Papua New Guinea (Port Moreseby), United States (California/Stanford University), Hong Kong and Japan (Tokyo). Unlucky enough to have spent 10 years living and working in London.
Location London in body, Tokyo in spirit
Best Climbing Experience Spiderman (12a) at Yugawara in Japan. The first 12a put up in Japan, so a nice one to get done. Hard for the grade too.
Spain April 2009, onsighting 7a's day after day for 1 month. Some hard, some
soft, most great fun.
Ogawayama September 2009. Finally learning to enjoy granite and appreciate it's superiority over limestone.
