I started climbing with CUMC in October 2014 and was immediately hooked. I love sport, trad and bouldering.
Best Climbing Experience Red Rose Speedway at Symonds Yat, my first HVS onsight. Jumping on the train with a scrappy bit of paper for another South Wales Sandstone 'adventure'. Climbing the Old Man of Hoy, including leading the crux pitch!
