More Info:
I got into climbing about ten years ago, when hill walking turned into alpinism with a walk up Mont Blanc. I still enjoy walking, preferably with my dog Ben the batty boarder collie. Alpinism led to rock climbing and I soon became a very keen trad climber. A long term wrist injury, marriage and fatherhood have caused me to metamprphosise over the years from in shape free climber to off the couch aid man. It is no easy buisness being an aid climber in England. We just haven't got big enough crags. A few wet roofs from the seventies survive, otherwise you have to hunt hard for new lines of quality and they are usually one pitch. Still I often go to France where things are different. I love the Verdon gorge, where there is a modern aid scene on very steep limestone walls. Job wise I am head gardner at a country house. Another metamorphosis -from Classics master at a public school. I just figured that was no job for me. I like to work under the sky, and know what I am doing is definately useful. I recently touched American rock for the first time, making 4 new grade iii routes in the Utah desert, one slab, three clean aid. I must go again.
