    About me

    I have been climbing since the age of 10. As a youngster I competed a lot with some second places at National comps. These days I spend my time training on a home wall, and enjoy getting out on the rock for sport and bouldering when I can.

    Your Setting Experience

    I started commercial setting at The Tower Climbing Centre in 2008, I have been setting there weekly ever since. I have set for many local bouldering comps, Midlands Youth Climbing Series and Midlands Regional rounds of the Youth Climbing Series. More recently I have started setting at other walls including The Pinnacle in Northampton, The Ballroom in Coventry, DMU University in Leicester and Redpoint Worcester.
