Sporting highlights

New route in NW Greenland (73 degrees North in the Arctic Circle) with Olly Sanders and Lee Roberts. 850 metres of pristine Granite climbing. We climbed each pitch on-sight. Such a good laugh too.



Favourite destination

Kyrgyzstan is the most stunning place I've visited, with an extremely diverse landscape and stacks of climbing and mountaineering potential. Hard to beat the UK though, Gogarth, Cloggy, The Pass, Lleyn, Slate, Orme, Grit, Malham, Scarfell, Fair Head, Bowden Doors, Ben Nevis, Glen Coe, The Shelterstone, Beinn Eighe, The Cuillin, Orkney....OMG! Let's go climbing now!



Inspiration

When people go "all out!"
