Phill Matthews

I have been living in Cornwall all my life & for well over 20years I've been working as an outdoor education/rock-climbing instructor.
I work mostly in the south west teaching rock climbing & mountaineering to aspriant instructors although occassionally I do venture further afield.
You will normally find me at the lesser visited crags through out Cornwall & Devon running lead climbing courses, SPA,WGL training & assessment courses, Rope Rescue & self-help courses etc.
I perfer to climb VS-HVS sea cliff routes in big comfortable mountain boots & I love drinking tea looking out to sea especilly when the sun is setting.

Interests Outside Climbing
I'm a keen motor-cyclist and I ride a BMW R1150RT touring bike which has loads of space for my climbing kit.
I'm also a very keen Amature Radio operator & can be heard on the air most days.
