I am 17 and a climber based in South West, currently studying at college in North Devon.
I have been climbing from a young age, introduced to the sport by my Dad. Although I properly began climbing at about the age of 9. I joined the local climbing walls youth club and then progressed through the various squads they had at the time. From about the age of 12 I competed in various competitions in both lead and bouldering held nationally. Competing provided me with a goal to work towards which I found helped me to become a better climber. I really enjoyed competing and achieved some good results such as a podium position in my last year of girls group A at the National Youth Climbing series final held in Edinburgh (April 2018).
Over the past year as I have stopped competing as much and have been climbing outside more. I have been really enjoying bouldering on the coast locally and exploring the Exmoor coast in particular, Putting up a few of my own first accents. I have been on various Bouldering trips abroad including a week in Fontainebleau in France and a trip to Albarracin in Spain earlier on in the year and already have several trips lined up for the rest of the year, including another trip to Albarricin.
