Started climbing at age 3 with my grandfather Keith Lawder (FA Devil's Slide, Wrecker's Slab etc) known to many simply as The Admiral. Long time devotee of SW seacliff climbing and Patagonia/Tierra del Fuego. About 200 new routes in the region. Author of the 1988 edition of the North Devon & Cornwall CC Guidebook. Still crazy about adventure climbing after all these years.
Best Climbing Experience Too many to choose from, but probably my son's first VS lead, and any route climbed with the crazy gang from the SW in the 70s and 80s, Pat Littlejohn, Keith Darbyshire, Pete O Sullivan, Dave Hillebrandt, Pete Freeman, Dave Garner and all the others.
