    About me

    I am a 21 year old climber sponsored by Beyond Hope and free lance route setter based in Bristol. Climbing has been a big passion of mine since I started 6 years ago. During my climbing career so far I have managed to climb 8b sport, E6 and V10.

    Your Setting Experience

    Starting off with hold washing and stripping at Undercover Rock in Bristol, I then learnt to set under the supervision of Prajak Khunrat where he taught me to set on ropes and how to rescue a setter. Having recently completed level 1 IRATA course I have learnt to work at heights competently and efficiently.

    I have set at many walls including Undercover Rock & Bloc in Bristol where I have set alongside Cailean Harker. Additionally, I have set for many local boulder competitions including fore running problems up to 7c.

    I am always working towards making my setting memorable and enjoyable for people to climb and I consistently look for new ways to make this happen. The main way of doing this for me is to climb as much as possible in as many places with different styles as I can. I have been on many trips abroad to climb. Some of these places include Spain, Kalymnos and France. I have also climbed all over the UK on rock types such as Limestone, Sandstone, Gritstone and Granite.
