Best Climbing Experience First Alpine route will stay with me forever...early start headlamps and crunching ice and snow under crampons, glacier crossing then a fantastic ridge climb up to 3658 as the sun came up...Joy in the Swiss Alps.
Everything ive done in Chamonix.
Been first on the summit Dent Du Geant summer 06 was nice. Big multipitch routes in Ailfroide, Lundy and Pembroke sea cliffs.

Anything Else We Should Know Dad... Keen Photographer, slow runner, love sailing , average Guitar player, lover of dark quality ales. slowly discovering that climbing walls are actually ok and sport climbing is not for the faint hearted.
