    About me

    I have a natural passion for creating climbing moves and routes, which started with building and using my own home bouldering walls. I have spent the past ten years developing my route setting skills at commercial walls, creating routes that appeal to all types of climber. In my mission to create flowing, technical and original sequences I have refined my own ideas through experimentation, and through the influence of other route setters and different rock types around the world.

    Your Setting Experience

    10 years’ commercial setting of routes and boulder problems. I have set for many competitions including the BRYCS, the Welsh Universities’ Comp and the New Zealand Nationals. I have also set in Australia and Germany.
