About me

I have been climbing since 1981. I started while at school in Lancashire with my first experience at Pex Hill. I moved to Yorkshire for University, where my access to brilliant rock climbing increased significantly. I have since climbed extensively throughout the UK, Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and even the South Pacific. Living now in Australia I am further from good quality rock than at any time in my life but still climb with as much passion as ever, and as often as possible, with my partner Mandy and our son Kai.
