Trad sea cliff climber at heart but love Alpine rock , Mixed mountain stuff ,fresh powder and frozen grass.
Mostly psyched for off piste skiing and Alpine nowadays , but miss the sea and granite.

and nabbing the 3rd ascent of Perracoma...
Perfect Alpine day of Swinica Pillar..firm snow , beautiful weather and being rewarded with an amazing alpine sunset..
