James Moyle

Grew up in the West country and South Wales and cut my teeth climbing age 15+ in the Wye valley, learning from books and having epics on borrowed scout climbing gear (Think Joe Brown and Troll!). A member of the Newport Moutaineering Club at the time which was brilliant.

Moved to Sheffield for University to study Physics and Astronomy. Wasted my opportunity here to climb and spent an unhealthy amount of time out of lectures helping to crew gigs.

Have been teaching Physics now since 1996 and Currently in a middle management position at a Girls School in Bath.

I climb about once a week but more often in an evening than the weekend.
