Why I love to...
A few years ago, while living in London, a friend of mine got into wall climbing and brought me along with him. I loved it instantly and although I had let it go for a few years I’m now back into it in a big way.
In general, I love strength and conditioning exercise. With climbing, I love utilising the work I’ve put in in the gym and seeing it pay off. When people ask me what the hardest part about the sport is I say everything!
Getting down can be scarier than going up. You climb to get to the top and then when you are there you can freeze and face a fairly steep drop. Even though the floor is soft you can still injure yourself.
