|Top of Half Dome- Yosemite|
When I start climbing 10 years ago the first place I climbed was Canada rocky mountain.
I was traveling on my own for snowboarding in this area. At this time, I had an interested in climbing and met some local people at the gym. I was a totally beginner, but people were happy to take me out and teach me what it was all about. The first time out on the rock I was hooked and I started get into climbing.

After then I started to forcus mainly on sport climb and boulder. This style of climbing allowed me to push myself to my limit without too much of the danger associated with trad climbing.
In the past I used to dismiss trad climbing as being slow and felt I was unable really push myself. But now I can apply the strength and technical ability gained from sport climbing to the trad style. In the UK this opens up so many places you can go and so many experiences you can have. For me, variety is the key to enjoyment!
