Walker, canoeist, sailer, glider pilot, rock climber and father of 3.

Middle son of a polar explorer, and grew up in the wilds of Orkney and the Falklands - so take after my father in outdoors pursuits.

Happy in the middle of mountains or forests in a tent :-)

comment Is freeze-dried food healthy?
I'm not sure this is answerable as per the title, as healthy in an outdoor survival situation is very different to healthy in an urban setting - less fat is often a bad thing in the wilderness.

comment What’s the difference between a B and a T ice axe?
All the T rated ones in the climbing shop here are heavier, chunkier and generally more solid than the B's, but that's not a huge sample, I guess.

comment What’s the difference between a B and a T ice axe?
Technical seems to encompass very hard ice climbing (not entirely sure as I'm more of a rock guy too)
