been climbing for about 25 years started a bit too old but keen to push the grades,work around VS on all rock, When the route suits me and the wind blows in the right direction have been up about a dozen E1's even fooled myself into getting up a E2. Sport climb more now to about 6a/6a+
am now on my 15th winter season (spent a lot of time getting my winter ML) and like most still a punter at around III or IV'.
Climbed a few easy trekking peaks in India to 6000M and a few more challenging ones in Bolivia. Also attempted a couple of 6000M+ peaks alpine style in Nepal and learnt the hard way it is mighty tough.

Best Climbing Experience
Must be the winter route up tower ridge, had it all decent conditions good views in the cloud breaks then sunshine for the top.Also like to push it a bit and pushed the boat out on a big route out of the camp site at Ailfroide 6b+ was on a slab so just about managed it.

Interests Outside Climbing
will try most things in the outside. Expeditions climbing and trekking, love exploring new areas. Was in Kashmir in 2019 when all the alleged trouble was going on, never saw a bit of it up in the mountains. Did the same in 2018 when I was in Nicaragua just after the riots and again saw no trouble, or any western tourists for that matter.
Done the high route Pyrenees from Atlantic coast to Med coast through the mountain. Also done the Camino in Spain best walk ever.
