Weekend warrior, always chasing the best conditions whether that be mountain trad, ice climbing or bouldering.

Spent the past few years mainly bouldering and winter climbing, but after a breaking my hand last a few years ago I've put down the pads and picked up the trad rack and not looked back. Psyched for big mountain multipitch trad/winter climbing whether it be in the Lakes, Wales or Scotland! Not one for sea cliffs...
