I started climbing when I was 8. My parents, my sister and I had been living in India for a year just outside Bangalore and during this period I was a little monkey on the climbing frame at school; all possible time was spent on the steel frame we called the “Jungle Jim”. When we moved back to the UK, my games progressed to climbing around the house – my favourite game was trying to climb around the house and into every room to touch the far wall, all without touching the floor!

I was only young but nevertheless these games impacted on the furniture, and seeing my love for general scampering, my Mum and Dad decided to find out if “climbing” was a thing. It was from this moment that I began climbing in the more normal way. My climbing began inside but I soon ventured out onto the rocks in the Peak District, Portland and Fontainbleau as a teenager. The rest, as they say, is history….I love climbing outside, going on trips and travelling.
