Long time exile to Finland but currently back in the UK. Former Glasgow resident so maintain a keen interest in Scottish winter. Experienced ice climber, at least of little Finnish ice climbs. Have tried just about all types of climbing and am very average at all of them. Am not a total disaster at crack climbing though.

About My Photography
Can just about claim to be a "published photographer" due to having had a few pics in Climb and High over the years.

Anything Else We Should Know
A) HB alloy Offsets are most under-rated bits of climbing pro out there. B) I haven't really climbed "proper" TD - just some nice friendly high up rock routes that get given the grade for being technical. C) I have a bit of a 'thing' for arctic Norway.

Routes wishlist: Being vaguely realistic: Stetind South Pillar, Norway (ticked! 2013). Suuri Leikaus, Olhava (ticked! 2009). Westering Home, Reiff (ticked! 2016). Oikea Suora, Nuuksio (ticked! 2006). Point Five Gully, Ben Nevis. North Wall Groove, the Cobbler. Red Square, Nessclife (ticked! 2010). Black Wall, Llanymynech. Anything at Gogarth (sort of ticked, 2007). Anything on Cloggy. Anything at Pembroke (ticked 2015).
