I began climbing as a self-taught sketchy teenager in Devon around 2007. Despite early aspirations to climb big, cold, icey mountains, I soon lost these desires and am now an unashamed rock climber. The particular flavour of rock climbing that I prefer very much depends on the season, and at different times favour bouldering, sport climbing, trad climbing and big multi-pitch routes above the others. Though I am probably most into long single pitch trad climbs and sport climbs.

Since those early days, climbing has shaped and directed my life above all else. From 4 years spent in North Wales, through eventually being led to Sheffield to spending much of the last two years living out of my van working in Rope Access and then heading off on trips as much as I can.

I’ve traveled and climbed fairly extensively throughout the U.K. and world though the list of routes I wish to climb and places I’d love to visit is ever expanding.

Though not the most talented climber you’ll ever meet I’d like to think my passion for the lifestyle which it leads some of us down would earn me the “lifer” badge.

About My Photography
Very amateur, it tends to be just for my own personal memories, and even then I rarely get the camera out. Do like to try and take good scenic shots though, especially when they involve unusual light or vistas that only climbers get to see.
