Growing up near the Catalan Pyrenees I've always had an attraction to mountains. I started climbing aged 14, but skiing took over for most of my teenage years, eventually becoming an instructor. It was only later, when I lived in the Dolomites, that climbing really took hold. I make my living doing graphic design, but climbing has been the fabric that has knitted my life. In the last 20 years I've explored many corners of the world looking for things to climb. I especially enjoy the winter environment and the ephemerality of ice climbing. I’m based in London but I spend as much time climbing around the UK with my wife Viki and our trusty old camper van.
