    About me

    Hi my name is David and have over 30 years experience with over 100 FA.
    Recently – 0221 – I put up several 7a+ and 7b boulders and opened 50 more problems in the Forest of Dean, UK. I also boulder on the Culm Coast, my second home and the place where I first discovered bouldering. Hit me up for a broad range of flowing problems inspired by the outside.
