    About me

    I have been climbing for 8 years- both indoors and outdoors. I have focused the last 4 years on my climbing career, pushing up my grade and competing in local competitions. In 2017 I managed to climb my 3rd 7c sport route, 2x V8 boulders and a handful of E2 trad routes making me a well-rounded climber capable of using my varied experiences when route setting.

    Your Setting Experience

    I have experience route setting for schools, leisure centres, military bases and climbing gyms. I takes pride in creating interesting, challenging and fun routes and boulder problems.

    Having completed my RSA (Route Setters Association) Level 2 qualification and the BMC FUNdamentals Level 2, I can competently set routes for climbing walls with experienced climbers and can assist school students in reaching the standard needed for NICAS of NIBAS. Alongside my route setting, Sam is also a climbing instructor at my local wall and a climbing wall technician travelling around the UK.
