I like getting into the outdoors to walk, camp, climb, sea-kayak, telemark-ski and mountain bike. Have backpacked at least 7,000 miles with my wife Martina, mostly in the US: in the rockies- Hayduke Trail 700 miles in 2014, Continental Divide in 2009 and Pacific Crest Trail in 1998.

Location
Scotland, black isle

Best Climbing Experience
Lots of great days out in the mountains- maybe Ancient Art on the Fisher Towers, Utah stands out as a particularly memorable experience. Wild exposure and wind on the final 'ice cream cone' summit pinnacle (see pic in gallery). Aguille Dibona in the Ecrins, Devils Tower -Wyoming, Integrity - Skye, everything at Bosigran, Needle -Shelter Stone, Spartan Slab Hammer Pause Ba's at the Etive Slabs are wonderful too.
