Dave Barrans - Scarpa

Dave Barrans

. Having been brought up on the gritstone crags of Yorkshire, I have climbed for as long as I can remember and have dabbled in most aspects of climbing. From hard trad on-sights to long alpine adventures I have savored each for the different experiences they offer and quietly proved I im no ‘one trick pony’. Having on-sighted up to E7, bouldered 8b+ and red-pointed F8b+ I am most focused on making fast ascents of classic lines.

Over the last few years, I havr concentrated largely on competitions, in both bouldering and sport climbing disciplines.I

I am based in Yorkshire and work as a route setter across the country to pay the bills and support my  competition habit. With big goals for the future, the next few years are sure to be exciting..
