    About me

    Hi, I’ve been a keen rock climber since 2005 and have a background in Mechanical Engineering. I currently work for Mountaineering Ireland as their Youth Development Officer for Northern Ireland. Previous to this I’ve worked as a self employed Mountaineering Instructor and route setter.

    Your Setting Experience

    I’ve worked regularly as a route setter since 2012 at a variety of climbing walls around Ireland. I’ve set commercial, training and competition style routes and problems at a variety of wall types. I have the IPAF 1B qualification for setting off of lifts in this category. I gained the RSA 1 and 2 qualifications in 2016.
