From drytooling and ice climbing, to sport and even a spot of trad, it’s fair to say you enjoy almost every discipline of climbing. If you had to pick one discipline as your favourite which would it be and why?
My favourite type of climbing is sport climbing. I love how you can sport climb all over the world. It’s a very sociable form of climbing and a great way to make new friends – while it’s a great day out, it’s usually very tiring as well! I’m looking forward to doing more this summer and making the most of the nice weather.
We know you’ve been training hard for the competition season, what are the goals you’re aiming for?
My aim is to compete in the Winter Olympics and hopefully to become a climbing coach. I’m currently working on my Fundas course, and as part of that I have been teaching younger climbers.
What advice would you give other young climbers looking to follow your lead?
My advice to younger climbers is to see climbing as a way of life and to view it in the long-term, as sometimes it can take a long time and a lot of commitment to see even small improvements. Climbing is great for your health and fitness levels regardless of whether you do it to compete or just for fun.
