Hazel Findlay - 'The Climb Within Lecture' Tour Press Release

© Speakers from the Edge

Hazel Findlay – Hazel has been climbing for 21 of her 29 years, and started out trad climbing on the limestone sea cliffs of Pembrokeshire. She dabbled in competition climbing - becoming the British junior champion six times - but at 16 decided to give it up to focus on climbing on rock, especially trad climbing which is her main passion. Hazel has been a full-time climber for the last six years, which has allowed her to travel all over the world climbing interesting pieces of rock.

Hazel was the first British woman to climb a trad route at E9, and free climb El Capitan in Yosemite, which she has now done four times. Hazel has also red pointed 8c and on-sighted many 8as, loves all types of climbing from bouldering to alpine climbing and is especially interested in the mental challenge that climbing evokes.

As a speaker, in addition to providing entertaining and inspiring talks, Hazel also offers insight into the psychological side of motivation – essentially demonstrating how to learn the habits required to perform a person's full potential.

Look pretty odd that there are no gigs in Yorkshire. You'd have thought a trip to Sheffield or Leeds might dig up an audience. Shame.
