Born in 1977. Just finished an Environmental Chemistry PhD (air pollution research). Am a keen hill-walker, and never intended to take up climbing, but I seem to be climbing more these days... Have a particular interest in routes that were originally done wearing tweed. Used to work in Manchester and enjoyed getting out onto the Gritstone edges on a summer evening. Enjoy finding new places to climb.

Location
Aberdeen

Best Climbing Experience
Getting up routes despite my lack of talent and fear of heights.

Camping at Vega Huerta, in the Picos de Europa, and climbing Pena Santa de Castilla.

Doing Cioch Nose, Squareface, Recess Route, and Punster's Crack, in 2010.
