Climbing has always been my main passion and I have climbed extensively across Europe and further afield. This year I plan a weekend recce of the Classic Rock Lakes Challenge for a sub 24 hour attempt next year. But it won't be as fast as Chris!
Recent achievements have been a quick hit ascent of Fiesta de los Biceps. This year seems to be about trad so far and getting back into outdoor bouldering with inspiration from the new guide. But I can feel sport climbing calling.....
Having worked both in the police and as an outdoor instructor/climbing coach in the UK and Spain I re-trained as a physiotherapist at Manchester Metropolitan University. I spent 4 years working for a physiotherapy company in South Manchester/Cheshire and the last year working based in North Manchester but visiting patients at home.
I have been coaching climbing for over 12 yrs, completing the Neil Gresham Masterclass coaching training in 2008 and have continued to keep up to date with developments in the coaching world both through my own studies and through the accredited coaching qualifications now available. I still coach individuals and a competition squad through Process Coaching.
