I'm Dom, origionally from Shropshire where I worked for 1.5 years at Manor Adventure OEC as an instructor, my first taste of the industry. Then I moved up north to Yorkshire to work for Robinwood which I did for 3.5 years. I then went to work as the assistant manager at 'The Barn' climbing wall which I did for 6 months before deciding I wasn't enjoying it. I currently work freelance.

Ive been climbing for about 7 years, practicing Bushcraft for longer.
I recently became a BMC access representative for Todmorden as I enjoy finding and cleaning forgotten quarrys & crags.

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm currently exploring as many of the quarry's local to Todmorden as i can, many of the smaller ones are green and forgotten, but a few days clean up has paid off as i recently put up 4 first ascents at Watty Quarry and have discovered a couple more projects.
