Born 1979.
French immigrant living in Scotland. I grew up in the Ubaye valley (southern Alps) and it all started there. I used to be a better rider (ski/ telemark/ snowboard) than a climber but I'm away from the slopes and I really enjoy my climbing now . I earn a living by trying to teach French to Scottish teenagers (who by and large are not interested...delayed gratification not being a teenager's forte.)

Location
Black Isle- Highlands

Anything Else We Should Know
Seem to suffer from post natal disorder since January 2011 (lame excuse for being soft).
