Northern Tooling Series (NTS) & Sunderland Wall are proud to announce the opportunity everyone has been waiting for; to climb, learn and listen to Britain’s hottest climbing commodity, Greg Boswell. This exceptional young talent will share his thoughts and techniques used to climb Britain’s hardest winter routes. Recently (last week) Greg repeated ‘Don’t Die of Ignorance’ on Ben Nevis’s North Face which is graded an unparallel XI 11.

Minimum climbing experience is required to enjoy this special event. With a maximum of 8 people per session you are guaranteed to pick up some of the skills Greg has used to climb some phenomenal routes.
