When I'm not plotting to disgrace myself, climbing is my favourite way to spend my free time, but questioning my life choices probably comes a close second. I also spend my time running, walking, mountain biking (poorly), doing yoga, eating cake and going to the pub.
I have been a member of the LMC for over ten years. Enjoying the opportunity to climb, mountaineer and walk in the great outdoors. As a side-line, I do a little cabinet making, although my wife complains that more stuff goes in the workshop than leaves it.
I enjoy climbing mostly, indoor and outdoor. I have a love hate relationship with gritstone but climb on it anyway because apparently it’s the done thing around here; I guess I do enjoy a good hand jam or two... at least when my tiny hands fit. I love a bit of mountain biking, and I am an occasional walker, rarely straying into mountaineer territory. Generally happiest wandering in the Lake District in the summer with my family, a bag full of snacks and a mega flask of tea. I also enjoy photography, film making, and desktop publishing.
In my more productive moments, I like to climb boulders in the biting wind and snow, hike up the unpopular side of mountains, and write silly tales about people who do the same.
I'll do anthing that gets me outside but mostly climbing and walking with some yoga thrown in for good measure.
If you want to join the club, please register on the web site, send us a quick email and either come down to The Big Depot climbing wall on a Tuesday evening or join us outdoors (see the meets calendar) we’ll try and pair you up with climbers of a similar ability.
My top tip is get outdoors and do what you enjoy to the best of your ability, have fun and stay safe.
