I like adventurous climbing anywhere wild and beautiful. I love sea cliffs, with the waves crashing below me and the salt and spray in the air. But there'll always be a place in my heart for a grotty quarry or urban shithole.

Best Climbing Experience
Vestpillaren on a beautiful sunny day with the calm blue sea behind us. Concrete Chimney in the evening light, the rock golden and glowing. Graunching up jamming cracks and getting pumped. Dawn sunlight over Scafell. Tense teetering up exfoliating culm choss and topping out into bluebell wood. Dusty and delicate South Stack adventures. Tufa jug hauling on Kalymnos followed by sun, sea and swimming. The total focus of a hard redpoint. The battle of an onsight at your limit. Moving quickly and smoothly over easy terrain. Pretty much all of it really!

Best sport onsight is Kalymnos grades so not very representative of my actual climbing ability!
