Tom is a 27-year-old British climber and writer who has a penchant for trad, winter and alpine climbing - the bigger and harder, the better.
Some of Tom's favourite routes include Cracking Up (IX,9), The Fourth Dimension (E7 6c), Fun or Fear (ED3), Rare Lichen (E9 6c), The Secret (IX, 9), Divine Providence (ED3), and a winter ascent of the Walker Spur (ED3). However the biggest news came last August when, with Aleš Česen and Luka Stražar, he successfully climbed Latok I in the Karakorum, Pakistan. They climbed three-quarters of the coveted North Ridge, before taking a line on the face in the upper section. The North Ridge of Latok is recognised as one of the last major lines in high-altitude mountaineering, and this was also the second-ever successful ascent of Latok I.
