About me

I joined TheCrag when I was living in South Africa. At the time I was the 3rd best trad climber in the country according to my CPR. Since then I moved to Brisbane QLD which must have severely affected my climbing performance because now I rate closer to 1000th in Australia

You can find me at Frog Buttress, hanging around a nest of five to eight bomber pieces, teary eyed, unable to do the move because all the good holds are full of gear, or at K2 buying a bigger cam hoping that it might give me the confidence to finally lead Satans Smokestack.
