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.
Interests Outside Climbing Overland exploration - vast empty spaces, deserts especially, hold a huge fascination. Otherwise an eclectic mix of music, films, books, miniature dachshunds, North Africa, Utah, SRT caving, mine exploration and canals.
After over half a lifetime and a small fortune spent on Solihull's "finest" , rehab (by Toyota) has worked and my Land Rover addiction is finally cured.... :-)
