I’ve been seriously climbing for two years after previously only doing it as a past time. I moved here (Kinlochleven) because I wanted to start climbing more and climbing at Ice factor on a daily basis has vastly improved my climbing. Kev has really helped me get to grips with some things and just being awesome at climbing also helps ;) I am of course very humble about my abilities and teachable :P

I'm originally from Ayrshire but stay in Fort William now so I can focus totally on my climbing. I feel I've pushed certain facets of my climbing as far as I can considering I have only one hand so next for me is to move onto the Greater Ranges and my first trip to the Himalayas is in the pipeline. I work at the Ice Factor as they allow me to work part time and very kindly sponsor me which allows me more time to climb/train and with severe problems after my fall time is at a premium to achieve as many of my ambitions as possible. I also work there as I find the team great to work with.
