Outdoor Climbing

Due to living in london, I don’t get many opportunities to climb outdoors, but thoroughly enjoy it whenever I have the chance! See for yourself below:

High Atlas Mountains, Morocco

In 2016 I travelled to the High Atlas Mountains to try to put up First Ascents in a newly discovered bouldering area called Oukaimeden. Check out part 1 of the 3 part series made by EpicTV of my trip!

 

Magic Wood, Switzerland

A week or so after returning from Morocco, I headed to Magic Wood (that is it’s actual name and it really is magical!) for more bouldering. Finding that the style style suited me incredibly well, I had my most successful 6 days of climbing EVER, sending five V11, three V12 and my first V13! Luckily, Dave Petts of Volo Digital was there to capture the smashfest for his hugely well-reviewed feature length film, REACH.
