While he has some impressive competition results under his belt, outdoor rock is where his heart lies, and Matty has ticked some of the toughest routes around. His resume lists some impressive sends, including Papichulo and La Rambla (both 5.15a) and a handful of 5.14d’s, as well as a grip of V14 boulder problems. And with a background in film production, the guy can wield a camera. Not a bad skill to have when you’re travelling around the world to beautiful crags all over the place.
