Was mainly into hill and mountain walking / scrambling, but will give anything a go, and as such got lured into climbing Nov 2004. I don't like short roadside routes, and it's long routes in the mountains that make me feel alive. Probably since the reason I decided to climb was to get to the top of mountains by interesting routes, avoiding footpaths :)
I am married to Jezza2101 of this parish, after meeting on the hill many years ago :)

Main activity listed as mountaineering since it's what I've tended to do most of for the last 6 months. No doubt it will go back to trad (well, multipitch mountain/sea cliff stuff) if we get a good summer, since I can't afford to snow-chase year round :(
Now mum to a 6yr old with a seemingly innate love of mountains too. Climbing on the back burner as a result, but small person already has several Wainwrights under her belt and has climbed and abseiled with me.
Was ticking the Classic Rock routes, to get me out and about to new places and not be lazy! Current total 51/81
