    About me

    I have been climbing for 15 years and involved in other outdoor activities since a young age. My achievements include an extensive portfolio of climbing, bouldering and mountaineering. I enjoy all aspects of the sport, however I am passionate about British Trad and mountain routes. I recently completed first ascents in Antarctica up to V5, I Trad climb at E1, Sport climb around 7a, and have summited numerous peaks in winter conditions up to 4,167m in height.

    Your Setting Experience

    I have been climbing for 15 years and setting for 10.
    Gaining experience at several venues around the country which includes small independent walls, as well as larger city centre facilities, I was required to set on a regular schedule, as well as for individual events and local competitions.I have a strong understanding of the indoor climbing environment, have worked for Entre-Prises Climbing Walls and instruct at facilities throughout the UK.
    I completed a “CWMA Route Setting RS2” course in 2008 and am qualified to “IRATA level 1”. I also hold SPA and ML qualifications.
