Ellis Butler-Barker

I love Climbing, I really like to push my self to the limits. I enjoy training for climbing wether it is climbing or doing a workout. I like working hard projects as this gets me motivated.

I am sponsored by Mammut, Dartrock Climbing Centre, Liquid Grip and Infinity Pro.

Best Climbing Experience
My first trip to El Chorro with Charlotte Warner was pretty cool! I had been training specifically for a hard route there but when we arrived we couldn't get to the route so I ended up doing loads of routes which was a lot of fun! I ended up doing 8b second go, 2 8a+'s, 4 8a's and my first 8a onsights which felt surreal! Such a great week both for climbing and just general fun. Charlotte inspired me too with her super impressive first redpoint ascent of Talbania 7c!
It was Topping 'L'Aerodynamite' at Bas Cuvier! It was the last day of my first trip to Font and had felt exhausted for the majority of the week so hadn't managed to do many problems. On the last day I ticked 'La Marie Rose' 6a (V1), 'Aerosol' 7b+ (V8/9)- Onsight, 'L'Carnage' 7b+ (V8/9), 'L'Carnage Assis' 7c (V9), 'Golden Feet' 7c+/8a(V10/11) and then I topped 'LAerodynamite' 7c (V9) in the rain and dark. Best day climbing so far!
Although topping The Cider Soak (F8a), New Power Generation (F8b) and flashing Situation Explosive (F8a) have to be up there too!
