Experienced hill walker, rock climber, mountain biker and general outdoor enthusiast.

I grew up in North Wales and spent lots of my early years walking in the hills of Snowdonia. I know all of the mountains of this area well and have climbed all the major peaks. Also spend time in the Lake District, Scotland and the Peak District.

Been rock climbing for around 5 years. I do Trad, Sport and bouldering both indoors and out.

Competed in the UK National Championships on Mountain Bikes at a Junior level, though this was many years ago!

I'm a member of the British Mountaineering Council

I also think it's important to donate to Mountain Rescue (one day they'll pick you up off the mountain because you did something stupid, support them!)

You can't 100%. That's why you're roped up and why you practice crevasse rescue!

Using a rope “Alpine Style”/Moving together answers the later part of your question

I'm not clear on what makes you abort in the previous attempts? Can you add more details?

why is this getting close votes? It seems very clear to me and 100% on topic?! Will the people voting to close please explain their reasoning as it is unclear to me. Also why the downvotes?
