Libby is one of the most experienced female climbers in the UK and one of just a handful ever to qualify as a British Mountain Guide.

Although she has turned her hand(s) to almost every conceivable discipline from big wall climbing to high altitude mountaineering she is perhaps most associated with UK trad climbing. Based in North Wales, with access to a fantastic variety of rock, Libby has onsighted numerous E5s on sea cliffs and inland valley crags.

Working as an instructor and guide has given her a unique insight into personal climbing development and has led to her work on the definitive textbook for aspiring instructors Rock Climbing: Essential Skills and Techniques as well as the Get Out on Rock DVD for those learning to trad climb.

Libby even manages to find time to write a column for Climber magazine, passing on years of knowledge and experience.
