Inspired by Dad, I started climbing young. Once I could drive, I spent many a weekend away - The Peak mostly - with my close friends who I still climb with today.

Got distracted during my 20's and only climbed a few times a year but made the most of it when I did!

Rediscovered my passion in my early 30's and now own Highball Climbing Centre in Norwich; I love helping people to #GetClimbing
