Who we are

A bit about myself:

I am 40 and have been climbing now for around 6 years. I fell in love with the sport after being introduced to it by a close friend. I've already notched up 100s of single pitch climbs, both lead and seconded with friends. I've travelled all over the country experiencing all forms of rock, including sport and Trad. My three boys also climb and there’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying a day out on the rock

A bit about myself:

I’ve been climbing for over 17 years and mountaineering for a life time. I’ve travelled all over the UK and indeed all over the world to get my fix of my favourite activity. I do my best to get up to the Snowdonia National park once a week, to hill climb and help marshal special events in around the area.

A bit about myself:

I’ve been climbing and mountaineering since I was at PE college. From hill walking to scrambling; single pitch to multi pitch climbs. I simply love it all! Like others I enjoy spending time with my family exploring all aspects of the outdoors but mostly enjoy the mountains and a good day at the crag.
