Local climbing area: The Peak District


"One third a professional climber, making a living from climbing related activities and work, and two thirds trying to make up the difference. Having grown up in the Peak District I have been connected to climbing for my whole life. I am primarily a trad climber, and enjoy developing new routes. I'm particularly interested in crack climbing, (which involves techniques to jam between the space in the rocks). Not being physically the strongest, the climbing suits my style as it is a very technical and also inspires me as crack climbs offer some of the most aesthetic lines and access to some of the best rock features in the world."
