    • Ollie Wragg: Duty Manager

      Ollie Wragg: Duty Manager

      Summary

      Previously I worked within Occupational Health, Special Needs Schools & studied at University in North Wales gaining a MSc in Exercise Rehabilitation and a BSc in Sports Science (Outdoor Activities).

      Within climbing I have ticked quite a few ‘mile markers’; SPA qualified in 2011, competing at the British Bouldering Championships & bouldering V11, flashing V9. I’m very keen to pass on my knowledge about the movement of climbing (I’m almost into it as much as Jonny Dawes…). I also sets on our boulder wall with Andy each Tuesday, so keep an eye out for some trickery and funk as you climb…

    • Andy Perrin: Squad Coach & Head Route Setter

      Andy Perrin: Squad Coach & Head Route Setter

      Summary

      I lead our Squad climbers (who are pretty strong by the way) & set on our bouldering wall with Ollie. Always happy to coach people up problems or give pointers on belaying. Personal climbing has seen me boulder V10 (on grit too…) I run our two adult evening’s ‘RockUp’ and ‘RockStart’, aimed at bringing climbers together, or teaching beginners how to be safe at the wall.

      Head Route Setter for the company; so I organise when and who will be in to set the routes that you all enjoy.

    • Rich Kiy: Senior Instructor

      Rich Kiy: Senior Instructor

      Summary

      I’m CWALA qualified so can teach you how to lead climb… I’m also our rescue at heights trainer, so teach our instructors how to get people down who might not want to…

      You’ll often see me down here climbing on Wednesday evenings, normally with a massive grin on my face; I think this shows my love for climbing.

      My personal climbing has seen me climb the man-made route up the side of a dam. I’m pretty handy around the centre too!
