Rob Greenwood - UKC

I am the Advertising Manager at UKClimbing/UKHillwalking.

Based in Sheffield, I have the good fortune of being based close to some of the best rock in the UK. Whilst I love the gritstone, it is nice to get on something longer every once in a while so throughout much of the Spring/Summer end up climbing elsewhere - either on mountain crag or sea cliff.

I began climbing whilst studying at Bangor University back in 2002, I then spent the following 10 years based in Wales working my way up through the ranks of Pete's Eats, Joe Brown's and DMM. Over the past year I have been working for the BMC as Regional Development Officer for England East.

Best Climbing Experience
Two moments in particular stand out: topping out of El Cap after completing The Shield with Alex Haslehurst and summiting the North Face of the Eiger via the 1938 Route with Jack Geldard. Both represented things that I never thought I would (or could) do when I first started climbing.

That said, the end of a days climbing at Gogarth or Pembroke still take some beating...

About My Photography
Whilst I would love to say more, I think the following three words sum it up nicely - point and click. However, I have set myself a target of improving this situation throughout 2014 and have recently invested in a new camera (Canon EOS M).
