More Info
University professor who still likes to get out on rock, be it trad, sport or bouldering (roughly in that order of preference). Been climbing 40+ years now but currently leading around E2 trad/F6c sport or 5.10b/5.11b in US money. Especially keen for medium length, multi-pitch trad classics in the 5.9-5.10 range. Visit the US fairly regularly and always keen to get out to a local crag. Met some great partners on here.
