Been climbing on and off for.....well since before camming devices and when a rope (hawser) was all you took climbing. Love it all, apart from the walk ins!
Best Climbing Experience Getting back to the bunkhouse after 19 hours on the Ben! Seeing beginners faces when they get on ice for the first time. Not falling off whilst soloing Great Gully on the Buckle. Topping out on The Nose. Scrambling on Striding Edge with my 8 year old son.
Interests Outside Climbing Diving - exploring deep wrecks in 50m or checking out the smallest wildlife in 1m. Gardening - love growing it, harvesting it, and best of all eating it! Photography, not doing enough but love it when i can. Foraging for dinner....and lunch....and breakfast.
