About Me

<p>I am a very keen climber who combines work and play by running a <a href="http://www.rockclimbingcompany.co.uk/" rel="nofollow">company</a> that offers guiding and instruction.</p> <p>I live and work in Spain over the winter and in Snowdonia, North Wales in the summer.</p> <p>I hold the Mountain Instructor Award and am a full member of both the Association of Mountaineering Instructors and the Mountain Leader Training Association. I am also qualified as a Physical Education and Modern Language Teacher and is fluent in Spanish, French and Italian. <br><br>I have been climbing for a long time and have a long climbing CV that includes: <br><br>• Several successful summits in Patagonia including the first female ascent of the amazing Cerro Fitz Roy. Many alpine classics such as the Bonatti Pillar (before it fell down!), the Walker Spur and the North Face of the Eiger. I also made an early repeat of 'The Fish' in the Dolomites.<br><br>• In the UK I have climbed many classic E5s such as Right Wall, Positron and Hunger in North Wales; Black Magic and Darkinbad in North Devon; A Grey English Morning and Headhunter in Pembroke. <br><br>• I was the British Female Indoor Climbing Champion in 1994 and a member of the British Competition Climbing Team from 1993 to 1995.<br><br>• In sport climbing, I have climbed over forty routes graded 8a and above in locations throughout Europe, UK, Asia and Australia. I recently red pointed my hardest sport route: El Oraculo (8b) in El Chorro, Spain.</p>
