David Staples

Hi, My Name is Dave Staples.

I have been climbing for a few years now and love every moment of it!

Pushing sport route 6b lead at the moment and am hungry to improve this. If im not to much of a wimp I can onsite up to HVS trad and have seconded E2.

Scotland to keep me entertained through winter and maybe a dibble dabble in the Alps in summer for a week or two or even three.

What else? I love the Pub, nothing like a few bevies after a long hard day belaying.

Give us a call or drop us a txt if you are up for a climb on 07964952451

I am a bit addicted and will go pretty much anywhere to climb if I can.

According to some I am way too optimistic about climbing trips some times. E.g. Hard trad in a very wet and rainy quarry! Saying that I will enjoy bivvying in the rain on Dartmoor... You get the idea...
