Keen climber who enjoys getting out. All disciplines rock and ice, for trad it has to be cracks and offwidths and in winter the iced lines on Ben Nevis/ Creag Meagaidh, rather than the mixed climbing in the Cairngorms.
I coach and instruct at several local centres with 25 years experience.

Outside of climbing I've done a Bob Graham round (22.13hrs solo), AW's Coast to Coast (52hrs moving time) Sea to Sea (in a day 9hrs solo) and the classic Fred Whitton (8hrs).

Location
Cumbria

Best Climbing Experience
Returning to Hound Tor and soloing Suspension Flake - this is where it all started for me whilst at Bicton College with my great late friend Matt Wilkes.
Leading all of Point 5 and The Orion Face on Ben Nevis under fabulous blue sky.
Featuring in a cool film on the history of climbing and the climbers of Armathwaite in the Eden Valley with film maker Dom Bush.
