Based in West Lancashire, David is a keen walker, photographer and rock climber. As a frequent traveller he has followed his pursuits in over twenty counties across five continents.

David worked initially in the police service, following which he taught in secondary and adult education. He subsequently worked as a psychologist with children and adults in the public sector.

After developing an interest in the mountains as a young teenager through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, David completed the Pennine Way at the age of 17. He improved his rock climbing in his 30’s largely through the influence of the Fylde Mountaineering Club.

During frequent climbing visits to Morocco with the Club he became increasingly aware of the potential for walking and scrambling and in March 2015 he returned with his partner Halina to explore and document the routes in this guidebook.
