I´m Scottish but now live near Basel, Switzerland.

Back in the UK I completed the Munros in 2006 and did a lot of rock-climbing around Yorkshire where I lived for a few years.

Now in Switzerland I´m more focussed on prominence-based lists to give me ideas on mountains to climb. The main ones I target are European Ultras, and the Major prominent mountains of the central Alps.

I also spend time in my local hills, the Swiss Jura, where I completed all the 150m prominent peaks in 2010 and am working to the same level in the Vosges and the southern Black Forest.

Anyone coming to Switzerland from afar is welcome to contact me for local knowledge.
