    About me

    I’m a Freelance Outdoor Instructor with a passion for setting routes, based in Keswick in The Lake District. I hold the following climbing/setting qualifications CWI, CWDI, RCI, RSA Lvl.1, RSA Lv2. plus several other outdoor qualifications outside of climbing. I have been climbing for almost 10 years now and I usually climb up to 7a/V7 indoors however, my main passion is Trad Climbing which I prefer to do when the weather allows and sometimes some sport climbing too. I think the beauty of climbing is having fun and enjoying the sport and I love to try and incorporate outdoor climbing techniques/styles into routes where possible and love the creativity of the setting process!

    Your Setting Experience

    I hold both the RSA Level 1 + Level 2

    Preferred Setting Grades: Bouldering: V0 – V5, Lead/TR/Auto belay Climbing: 5 – 6c.

    I have previously set on a variety of walls from old-style feature walls to standard plywood walls to clip n’ clip walls. I most recently worked at Kong Adventure and set there frequently and have previously set at other venues such as Ambleside Climbing Wall and Roefield Leisure Centre.
