    About me

    I live in the Lake District and have been climbing for about 5 years. I am a keen climber in all disciplines: F7b+, V10, E5. I am a boulderer at heart but I enjoy trying everything. I am currently head setter at Kendal Wall.

    Your Setting Experience

    I have been setting for about 3 years mainly at Kendal Wall but have occasionally set at other centres.
    Here, I set once or twice a week alternating between routes and boulders.
    I have done a creative boulder setting course which has helped me in all aspects of route setting; especially thinking of interesting comp problems.
    I have organised very popular bouldering competitions and helped set and co-organise at the YCS rounds held in Kendal.
