I've been climbing about
four six years. It might as well be forever as far as I'm concerned. I was hooked almost immediately. My favourite flavour is limestone: it's so versatile, and there are so many types.
I have struggled in my relationship with grit- I hated it at first. But it has grown on me. And sometimes I like it. It's just that I'm not always sure about the route setting. But it's very pretty.
Other than that... I'm doing an EngD at Sheffield... and I'm not too great at slacklining!
