From Hong Kong originally but lived in the N.E. for 15 years. Moved to North Wales with a job in 2011. Still love living there. Own 1 bike, 1 car, 2 racks and half, 9 ropes; what else do you need to know. Ask me. I may tell you more.
Best Climbing Experience Anonach Egach in lovely blue sky and white snow in Feb, 2001 and all the foreign climbing holidays. Anything seems better when it's abroad! Ice climbing 5 ft from the road in a gorge in Scotland must be something of a novelty!
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic Anything but rudeness.
Interests Outside Climbing Photography, skiing, mountain biking, karaoke, salsa, cooking, church, bike/car maintainence and power kiting.
About My Photography Mainly landscape and mountaineering. Done some portrait/wedding before. Spent many years doing 35mm but now moving to digital. Finding digital more fun to play with and cheaper on the long run.
