I have been climbing for over twenty years ... I first 'touched rock' aged 3 and started to climb frequently from the age of 5. Dave Dicks was my first ever coach & I trained with him twice a week for around five years at the original Nottingham Wall. Dave taught me to climb, & how to master of my technique, honing immaculate footwork and understanding the subtleties of movement in order to move my body effectively. If it wasn’t for Dave and those early years, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Aged 10 I was taken under the wing of none other than Neil Gresham, international climbing legend and founder of the world famous Masterclass Coaching Academy. Neil was my mentor both in climbing and also in a professional capacity, opening my eyes to the wider climbing world. Without Dave & Neil, I would not be where I am today.
