There are a fair few routes and boulder problems that I still really want to climb. Putting up new routes in unexplored areas is equally important to me. If I have to climb two hours through a 30-metre roof (ground up) on cams, skyhooks, drilling bolts as I go, to then fall because the rock is not strong enough to hold the pro so that I end up hanging from just a 10-millimetre bolt then I know that I've found a brilliant and challenging route that's prime for a first ascent. Discovering lines like these show me what my real goals are. And when I finish project like this, then I've achieved a major goal.
In everyday life, my goal is to be a good dad and to be there for my family.
