"When I started Beta Climbing Designs the BetaStick was our first design project and we launched the product into the UK climbing market in 2002, having enlisted the design help of my long term friend and climbing partner, Tony Whitehouse. Many people felt we were crazy at this time to develop such a niche climbing product – however the concept of BetaStick was born more from necessity than commercial reason.

Still recovering from a serious climbing accident, the need to not smash my body again was my main concern. Taking a ground fall off a sports route before the first bolt was definitely a risk I wasn't prepared to take."
