I work as Chartered Town Planner and although I'm mainly driving a desk these days, I love being in the outdoors when I can. I've been climbing since 1996 and have climbed all over the world since 2003, mainly trad & sport, the highlights probably being Australia in 2006 and South East Asia in 2007 and various trips in the French and Italian Alps 2008 - 2013, and 2017. Fantastic routes, great atmosphere. I started Scottish winter and Alpine climbing in 2008. I do a fair amount of skiing, mountain and road biking too.

Best Climbing Experience
Ticking my first HVS, Overhanging Groove at Almscliffe. Sending my first 7a at Malham. Topping out on Cathedral peak at 13,000.ft looking down on the whole of toulumne meadows. Beautiful! Eating apple turnovers in the Eastern Sierra, and taking a dip in the natural hot springs after a hard days climbing. A month in Arapiles dodging spiders, and ticking amazing routes. Inbred ****HVS at Creag Dubh in moody highland weather. DWS in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam - living on the boat and taking splash downs everyday into clear turquoise waters. Chappelle de gliere - looking back over la razeur. Traversee du midi plan. A sunny April day at Gimmer ticking off 5*** routes before sunset. Hadrians Wall direct on Ben Nevis in fat conditions and blue skies.
