    About me

    Climbing has been my passion for more than a decade, after starting from a young age. I initially started sport climbing during my youth but began trad climbing as I got older. I am originally from the South Wales area but am now based in the Lakes but continue to climb in a variety of places. I have just finished a University degree in Cumbria and currently work for Can Ltd as a Rope Access Tech so am happy on ropes and at height. I have climbed E6 Trad, 7a+ Sport and V7/8 Boulder outside

    Your Setting Experience

    Although I’ve only been regularly setting for around 4 years due to only being 21 years old, I have set in plenty of big walls around Britain including Beacon, Manchester Depot and Kendal, with extra small walls in South Wales, the Lakes and London. I love setting boulders and on ropes, and have experience setting up to 25metres.
    Setting for local competitions is a great passion of mine due to enjoying competitions through my younger years. I am happy to travel and keen to expand my experience in different places.
