I'm a passionate climber and IFMGA Mountain Guide based in the Chamonix Valley. I grew up in the Lake District, and have been climbing regularly since 2003.
I enjoy all forms of climbing from bouldering to expeditions. Alpine rock climbing and sea cliff climbing are probably my favourites.
I've been posting on UKC since about 2004. It's probably best to take anything teenage Tom wrote with a large pinch of salt.
