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

Made the full transition from boulderer to primarily trad and winter climber, but still enjoy a good bit of bouldering now and then. Got a soft spot for long Scottish multipitch and pumpy well protected climbing.

Kendal
