My dad introduced me to climbing when I was 9 years old. I had done mountaineering for a couple years already and he thought that was the next step. Started doing lead climbing comps when I was 11 years old and then picked up bouldering at uni and began training more seriously.
Dynamic/powerful climbing (shocker). Crimps are gross
Biggest achievement in climbing?
Probably Rainbow Rocket (8A/V11) It's super gimmicky and not proper climbing but it's my perfect indoor style in an outdoor boulder and I wanted to get on it for ages. Spent my 21st birthday in font and sent it on that day in one session.
What're your current projects?
My long term project is Karma in Fontainbleau which I hope I can tick off in the next couple of years.
I'd also like to develop my limited trad skills instead of punting up E1s with awful gear.
What does your training look like?
Usually my training just consists of actually climbing and trying hard problems at Social climbing in Leicester. Recently I've taken hangboarding more seriously and seen a massive improvement.
Do you think you'lll ever be able to train your way out of Puntersville?
I'm the king of Puntersville.
Favourite climbing film/video?
Free Solo obvs.....
Jimmy Webb climbing Lucid dreaming (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T1EKenKYoE) showed me fatties can climb small edges.
