James Pearson onsighting Charlotte's Dream Direct (E7 6b) at Back Bowden, Northumberland
UKC News, Feb 2012
© Wild Country Collection James Pearson made a fleeting visit to Northumberland after his recent trip to Asia, and despite a slight struggle with temperature adjustment after the warm climes of Thailand he made a quick and dynamic onsight of the E7 6b Charlotte's Dream Direct at Back Bowden.
James has just been interviewed for the Wild Country website following their announcement of their 2012 team, of which James is the big cheese.
An extract from the interview:
Essentially, you now have the dream job of being a professional climber, how is that for you?
"Life as a professional climber is great, I mean this is the best way I can describe it, it's perfect, it's my dream and I couldn't think of anything better. I think even if I was rich, you know, if I'd won the lottery and I didn't need to have sponsors, I still think it's better to have sponsors because you're continuously trying to push yourself, trying to evolve, you know, try and stay on top of things, and I think if you didn't have to worry about the money side of things, if you could just do what you wanted every day with no care it wouldn't be as fun. I kind of like the whole game, you have to have your assets and you have to try and learn to piece them together to make the best situation. And I really enjoy this, it's very creative."
