Captain Solo

Email User

Moved up to the Sneck in 2005 from Glasgow to be with my good lady who started a new job up here.
Used to get dragged up things when I was wee by my Dad but after a long lay off got back into walking/climbing in the last 10 years or so.
Age: As RFTC used to sing I was "Born in '69"


Best Climbing Experience
Too many to mention but enjoyed getting helped up the Old Man of Stoer a few years ago, November Groove on Stac Pollaidh (A defining moment, first multi-pitch lead), lazy sunny days at Reiff, a cracking day in Coire Lagan, various alpine experiences to name but a few.
