Have been sport climbing at Portland for 25(ish) years.
I climb with my wife Sarah, John Leonard & Mick Ward most Saturdays.
I enjoy putting up new sport routes on Portland with my wife, MW and JL. I have done 50 first ascents...so far...
Can lead 6a / 6a+ onsight (7a+ redpoint). Have never taken a large fall ('cause I usually wimp out!).
Occasional winter visitor to Exeter's 'The Quay', Wimborne's 'Edge', and Bridport's 'Rockburn' bouldering wall.
Part of a local Outdoor and Indoor climbing group called 'The Aloft' (FB).
