Links of great climbers who have helped me:

Gareth ‘Gaz’ Perry

Gaz was my first coach. He taught me movement skills and how to go for it i.e. commit. He is a lovely genuine guy and a true friend.

Johnny Dawes.

Well what to say about the creator of The Indian Face (E9 6c, HP 6c). Johnny does not need further introduction. This gent is a rock god and a rock legend both on grit and in North Wales. The Stone Monkey coached me in body positioning, coordination and balance. He is one of the loveliest guys I have met. A true gentleman of the climbing world.

Neil Gresham.

Neil  is an amazing all round climber and a lovely, friendly approachable guy. Neil taught me breathing and how to climb with silent feet amongst other things.

A truly amazing nan in so many ways. He is  – like Johnny Dawes – a role model and an inspiration to me.

Where it all started for me:

Craggy Island Indoor Climbing. I owe a lot  to the staff there – especially Marcus Boal who spends most of time in Spain these days and Gareth Squires who left and moved to Scotland.
