Currently taking a Gap year. Work part time in a Chip Shop, spend my spare time reading about climbing, Running and I sometimes go Climbing. Iam heading to
I was a pretty fat kid, didn’t do much other than eat and play computer games. Early teens i got into Scuba diving, which got me outside, but didn’t do much for exercise. I was introduced to rock-climbing when I was 14 by Chris Woodal. Climbing made me way to competitive for Scuba Diving, and I soon became bored of this expensive hobby, climbing took over when I was 16, after a trip to the Dolomites. These last years I’ve lost my belly, and took climbing seriously, finding it a vent from life, and somewhere to push myself competitively, I’ve learnt alot about myself, some of it good, some of it bad. Climbing is my demon, but its also my cure!
