Best Climbing Experience
Life isn't measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away. So going to the right place, at the right time, with the right people is all that really matters. What one does is purely incidental.
Moderator for 18 crags, checking missing climbs added to the logbooks: Craig y Merched, Garreg yr Ogof, Spitzkoppe, Pontokspitze, Craig y Fan, Craig yr Eglwys, Ponterwyd Quarry, Craig y Ffridd, Cerrig Gwynion, Caban Coch/ Craig Gigfran ... plus 8 more, Craig y Foel, Creigiau Dolfolau, Creigiau Llandeglau, Craig y March, Lluest y Graig, Rhinog Fawr South Faces, Clegyrau Graig Isaf, Craig yr Hebog (aka Craig Cilcychwyn)
Interests Outside Climbing
Overland exploration - vast empty spaces, deserts especially, hold a huge fascination. Otherwise an eclectic mix of music, films, books, Welsh Cobs, Welsh bothy maintenance, MTBing, Africa, Utah, SRT caving, canals and Land Rovers.
