Climber and Outdoor Professional based in North Wales UK with 15 years of climbing experience
For me, climbing is a lifestyle; I travel around the world to climb and when I’m not on the rock I coach people remotely and write and talk about climbing to inspire others.
My focus as a Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor is sharing my passion, whether it’s introducing people to the mountains or developing the skills and performance of ambitious climbers. I guide, coach and instruct clients in the UK and overseas. I have experience working for Plas y Brenin, Rock and Sun and other reputable UK activity providers, but I primarily work with private clients that come to me directly for tailored courses.
More About Me
I found climbing when I was fourteen and instantly became a climber. I fell in love with the adventure and athleticism of climbing and have since fully immersed myself in the world of climbing. Climbing is now my work and my play; when I’m not working I spend months at a time climbing full-time and when I’m back at work I bring other people into my world through instruction, guiding and coaching.
I now have more than fifteen years of climbing experience and take every opportunity to escape ordinary life and pursue my passion. I have made my home among the mountains in North Wales where I work as an Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor. I have travelled overseas to climb in Europe, Turkey, India, Brazil, China and USA, but I can still find just as much adventure on the crags of the British Isles.
I am passionate about performance climbing and love finding my limit on the end of a rope. For me, the chance to share my passion and support other climbers in getting the most out of their climbing is a dream. As I live and breathe climbing, spend much of my time engaged in mental training, write about climbing and perform at high levels, I bring something unique to my work.
I’d like to thank DMM Climbing, Rab Equipment and Scarpa for supporting me; I’m fortunate to work with companies whose ethos I support and whose products genuinely help me get the most out of my climbing.
