Jack Geldard - Consulting Editor

Email User


I'm a part-time consulting editor for UKClimbing.com, having been the full time Editor-in-Chief for several years previously.

My role sees me writing and commissioning some of the content on the site, editing and offering advice on some content and generally being involved in about half of the things you see popping up on UKClimbing.com.

As well as working for UKC, I'm a qualified Mountaineering Instructor and a Trainee Mountain Guide. You can book me for guiding and instruction/coaching through my personal website above.

I like all types of climbing, and enjoy trying out new things and new challenges. I also enjoy the places climbing takes me and I think that the people you can meet through climbing are what make it so special.

I've climbed all over the world, from bouldering to Himalayan climbing, and right now I guess my favourite styles are multi-pitch alpine sport climbing, and big adventurous mountain / alpine routes.

Chamonix, France

Best Climbing Experience
Overall some of my favourite experiences are: The North Ridge of the Piz Badile with my wife Emily, Rivière Pourpre in Morocco with Dave and Juha, climbing Western Gully in perfect conditions again with Juha, too many teenage gritstone epics to mention, climbing Magic Line in Bregalia with Aide many years ago, finally ticking Out of Africa in Madagascar with Fat Boy, a Scottish road trip with Ed, Climbing the North Face of the Eiger in Winter with Rob, a week of perfect Céuse sport climbing with Jude, making the first ascent of Spinal Crack in Wales with Steve and Ray, Onsighting Alien at Gogarth with Jim, climbing Fiesta at Riglos with Sarah - and many others. They're all brilliant in their own way!

About My Photography
I like taking panoramic photos of mountains and cliffs. My favourite photos are those showing lines and atmosphere of routes, or the emotion of a climber.
