Not so much climbing these days but still get out. Enjoy running and getting out into the wilds running.
Visiting islands on the RIB and getting pissed while pretending to be out fishing.
Best Climbing Experience Soloing my first ever FWA of a grade 3 mixed climb on the isle of Arran. Topped out as the sun set. Best ever feeling.
El Naranjo de Bulnes as well as the picture was on my wall as a kid for many years.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic Anything that causes a stir.
Interests Outside Climbing Running, cycling and spending as much time with my three kids 8,5 &4 as I can. Conflicts with climbing as its a very self sport. But now the oldest is climbing result! Fearless though which is a bit stressful.
Anything Else We Should Know Well I haven't been jailed since sleeping on a Arran bus in 1987. I did enter after 2am but no one was there to take the fare so why was I punished ? I was banned from the island but have been visiting under stealth for the past 30 years. Fugitive and proud!
