Favourite Tune To Climb To: Bimpé by Asa

Favourite Climb: Blue Climb, Escalera Arabe. An amazing 12 pitch route with panoramic views that I climbed earlier this year with my Dad in Spain. We went a bit off route, ate rice pudding out of a bag and ripped our feet to shreds… a real adventure that I’d recommend to everyone!!

Best Climbing Tip: push yourself until you fall off or reach the top… you’re more capable than you realise. And when climbing outside, take time up there to look around you, the view is part of the reward!
