In this section I would like to pass on some of the knowledge I have learnt over the years, Giving tips and tricks and ideas on how best to train and structure your training sessions.
I have been climbing for about 11 years and have been coaching for around 6 of them, having completed both my SPA and CWLA qualifications. I’ve been a member of both the Junior British Team and Senior Bouldering Team, which I was on for 6 years. I have been British Bouldering Champion and my best result internationally was 15th in a World Championships held in China in 2005. I have climbed up to E7 on trad, Sport climbed up to F8b and bouldered up to Font 8a+. I have been a British Junior Team coach and I have been running a Youth Squad at UCR in Bristol for the last two years, with climbing abilities ranging from beginner to elite with kids competing and winning at national level. Most recently I have been working with the BMC, as one of the coaches for their Talented Climbing Academies and have also been asked to run sessions with instructors on how to deliver performance coaching at level 5 of NICAS.
Please find below some examples of sessions.
