"I have been an outdoor fanatic since my father introduced me to the wilds. Since then I have climbed in such diverse places as Taiwan, Venezuela, Tian Shan, and kayaked in the Pacific Northwest. I love the awesomeness of the what the UK has to offer, my favourites being places like the Peak District, Snowdonia, Lake District and the Brecon Beacons".Mansel Guy Kersey
