Steve McClure is one of the best rock-climbers in the world, having climbed the hardest sport route in the UK at 9a+, numerous new routes at the grade of 9a and onsighted many at 8b+. Despite being better known for his sport climbing achievements, you might also find him wiggling in wires in Pembroke or sleeping in a portaledge on a 1000m wall in Greenland.
"I thrive on finding a way, a path through difficulties that donít rely on strength. I live for the immersion that climbing can give, all thoughts cast aside with only pure movement remaining."
