I am a freelance mountaineering instructor and route setter based in Sheffield. Always trying to get out in the peak district as much as possible and far too easily persuaded to book a trip away.
Best Climbing Experience Climbing the old man of Hoy, and having an epic, tearing a ligament in my ankle and getting stuck behind a slow German team meaning we missed the ferry back and had to improvise a night in the bothy. Blue cheese and rice cakes all round!
