Best Achievements so far: Free ascent of El Capitan in Yosemite 5.13a, Paciencia 8a on the North Face of the Eiger and the Indian Face on Clogwyn du’r Arddu E9 6c

Favourite Venue: Dolomites possibly?

How did you get involved?: I was first taken climbing by my mum and was soon introduced to family friends who were climbers. I would start off by going climbing after school but soon more and more of my time was spent climbing around North Wales.

Top Tips for future stars: Put effort into what you enjoy doing and remember that everyone started somewhere!

Your Idol and why: There are loads of inspirational people about from all walks of life and I find it difficult to pin any in particular down. I find Malala trury inspirational though for standing up for what she believes in against great adversity. That takes real character and courage.

Any thanks?: There are so many friends that have helped me and provided support and inspiration that I wouldn’t know where to start. I’d also like to thank my sponsors Rab, Black Diamond, Scarpa and ClifBar.

Future Aspirations: I’d love to find some great new adventurous big walls to climb.
