I have been climbing for eons, and somehow it still gives me great pleasure. Whether it is laid back climbing on some mediterranean island; walking in beautiful scenery to the top of something; fighting a desparate undergraded route on the local crags: working out down the climbing wall; or skinning up a remote alpine peak in white out conditions. It is the diversity of climbing, the close friendships I have made, the beauty of the surroundings and the combination of mental and physical challenge that appeals.

Thanks to everyone who has accompanied me, the memories last forever, and if anyone is looking for a climbing partner, I am always around.
