Why Hire Me?...

I am positive, outgoing, patient and calm; unintimidating, non-elitist, yet a technically strong and competent climber. 

I've been climbing regularly since 2003 and I'm fully qualified to teach you as an individual or as part of a larger group; helping you build on
what you've learnt indoors through to your first steps outside. 

Holding National Governing Body qualifications, rather than just ‘site specific’ authorisation, I am proud of an unblemished safety record.
