Still searching for the 48-hour day in order to fit all the things I'd like to do into it - eg family, work and play.
Frequently at Mile End wall.
Best Climbing Experience On Keelhaul (E2 5c), a delicious slab climb at Bosherston Head, Pembroke. I was leading the crux when my belayer John Nolan yelled to me to look down. And there in the sea was a seal, watching it all with profound interest. Great.
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic Is the number of people wearing helmets who can toprope a classic slab in an afternoon greater or less than the number of angels who can dance on the head of a pin, and would the angels be as annoying?
Interests Outside Climbing Family, computing, the oriental game of strategy called Go - which is very handy for negotiating with wife + 2 kids for weekends climbing. And music: Radiohead, Soul Coughing (magic!), Cake, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and um XTC and King Crimson. You don't have to like the last two, but Soul Coughing are obligatory.
