Angus Kille - Scarpa

Angus Kille

I found climbing when I was fourteen and instantly became a climber. I grew up in Shropshire, England and learnt to climb on the soft sandstone of Nesscliffe. Having spent much of my adolescence escaping to the crag it was inevitable that I would pursue climbing as an adult.

I've now been climbing for around twelve years, in which time climbing has developed from a hobby into a lifestyle. In the past few years, I've made my home among the mountains in North Wales, where I work as an MIA climbing instructor. Now I work and travel to climb, whether it's in the UK, Europe or further afield. I enjoy sport, trad, and bouldering and consider myself a bit of an all-rounder, but more recently I've been trying to find my limit on the end of a rope. This has left me looking for bigger, wilder challenges overseas.
