I have been obsessed with mountaineering for a long time. I love the multi-faceted nature of our sport and enjoy most aspects of it, but I like long trad mountaineering routes the best.

I like combining climbing and mountaineering with travel and there are so many places yet to explore.

Best Climbing Experience
All climbing experiences are amazing, but I love Chamonix and North Wales and visit both often. Best experiences include the North Ridge of the Piz Badile, the Hornli Ridge and Tower Ridge in winter.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Women's issues, mountaineering techniques, ropework etc, anything Alpine, and I'm fascinated by mountaineering history, especially between the 1930s and 1980s.

I love reading and listening to climbing-related anecdotes by ordinary, and sometimes quite extraordinary people.
