Originally from Sweden; living and climbing in the UK for the last two decades or so. Finished my PhD in computer science one year late in '98. Now working as a corporate drone in Bristol to fund my climbing habit.

Best Climbing Experience
So many to choose from! Pulling up on the summit of Stoer in blazing sunshine is up there. First lead on 'Right Angle' with a couple of playful seals watching me from the sea. Arriving at the top of Serenity Crack/Sons of Yesterday, totally spent after 9 rope lengths of crack. Finally sticking the finger lock on Goldenboy (V4) at the Buttermilks having the same day completed the Ironman Traverse. Finding jamming Zen on The File. Sending l'Angle Ben's at Isatis. Clipping the chains of Obsession at Malham upper tier - after a few days of effort that started feeling utterly impossible.

Anything Else We Should Know
Like the writings of Michael Ondaatje, Arturo Perez-Reverte, Umberto Eco, Milan Kundera, and modern science fiction from the likes of Iain M. Banks, William Gibson, Peter F. Hamilton, and older stuff from Heinlein, Dick, Clarke and Herbert. Film buff who believes that life's all great questions are answered in the movies.
