Adam Watson

Adam was brought up on the sandstone crags of Northumberland and loves all aspects of climbing. From the big walls of Europe to the epic boulders of South Africa, not forgetting his original love, scary British trad. It’s safe to say he’s done it all.

However, Adam’s climbing roots began in competition climbing at the age of 9, with his highest British Bouldering result being 2nd and his highest World cup position 11th at Munich 2012. He now spends his time exploring the world in search of the best climbing areas, the focus being on discovering previously unclimbed rock. Most recently he has spent time in the Grampians; climbing some of the most specular boulders and cliffs Australia has to offer.
