Dom Wragg

Hey, my name is Dom, I'm originally from Sheffield but have relocated to Leeds, I've been hanging around climbing walls and attempting to climb hard routes and boulders since I was 6 from the day my dad took me to spider club, The Foundry.

Traveling for a climber is crucial, but unfortunately for me, I have a high-intensity job. From Monday to Friday I work as Rope access rigger. I'm always training midweek and climbing on the weekends, through the winter months I work every hour possible to be able to fund our adventures in the summer. I've been extremely lucky to visit some amazing locations from world famous bouldering and sport climbing crags like Fontainebleau, Magic wood, Joe’s valley, Siurana and I still strive to visit the worlds best climbing locations

I still love a good crimp and steep overhanging walls, but as I've matured as a rock climber I'm beginning to push the limits of suffering, endurance, and ability. Being able to wake up at 4 A.M and set off on a huge mountain route gives me a great rush of accomplishment, alongside doing big multi-pitch routes I'm currently enjoying perfecting more disciplines of the sport. I've even begun developing more local crags around my area with friends and gaining first ascents. There's something about finding a new boulder in an esoteric location and climbing it.

The future for me is to work less and get away more, having the van is a great lure and insensitive to just go away traveling, I plan on heading back to the Alps next year to climb outstanding routes and to also explore the latest bouldering areas in Chamonix, my main life goal is still to accomplish 8b and always continue to train and keep pushing my limits.

My best achievement is probably finishing a night shift jumping straight in the van driving straight to Chamonix and doing the Cosmique Arete with a friend, it was a long few days...

-Favourite Scarpa-

My Instinct VS's are literally the best shoe in the world, from climbing steep overhanging boulders to climbing huge 220m+ multi pitches they can perform.  

-No Place too Far-

Its got to be Fontainebleau, every time I go it always feels like I'm there for the first time again,  the incredible climbing and food are just immense.
