One of the old-timers on the Scarpa team, but maturing like a ripe cheese! 40 years old, I live in Sheffield with my wife, two children, a dog and The Reverend (the cat). A professional route-setter for the last 15 years, I am one of the 3 guys who founded and built The Climbing Works (the original, biggest and best dedicated bouldering centre in the UK) – messing about in here is my current ‘day-job’. I am also an IFSC Chief Routesetter, so travel about to set routes for big international competitions. I have been chief routesetter for World Cups, European Championships and World Championships, and have worked in exotic locations such as the Reunion Islands, Russia, Slovenia, Italy, Spain, France and even Birmingham… I write occasional articles for the climbing press, and have had a spot as a regular contributor to Climb magazine for a number of years. I am also one of the team behind Gravity climbing centre in Dublin, but still can just about find the time to go climbing. Not the strongest member of the Scarpa team by a long way, nor the most attractive, but I can still do a bit. I even out-crimped Suzan Dudink and Martin Smith in 2011, which not many people can claim!
