Charlie Woodburn

Charlie's been a regular on the British trad scene for a while now. Probably best well known for his hard headpoints he has also onsighted or climbed ground up over 50 routes of E6 or E7. On the sport climbing side he has redpointed up to 8b+ and onsighted several 8a's. Always on the lookout for hard and interesting new routes, he has put up a few classic lines such as San Simian E8 6c in Pembroke, Harder Faster E9 6c at Black Rocks and the recent Something's Burning E9 7a also at Pembroke. He has also ventured further afield to places like Cuba and Nigeria to establish new and unusual lines. The latter trip culminating in the 10 pitch 5.11c Stupid White Men, climbed in 40 degree heat!
