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 trip to Rodellar with Charlotte in July 2014 was absolutely amazing! It my first experience of having a long trip as I was there for just under a month, I managed to get my first 8c's and 8b onsights. I also managed to get my first Font 8A+'s and Font 7C+ flash. It was also cool to see Charlotte get up her first 8a too! Such an amazing place and an all round great experience, I can't wait to get back there again soon!

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!
