Meet the Team

  • Julia Cartwright: Centre Manager

    Julia Cartwright: Centre Manager

    Summary

    A professional mountaineering instructor holding the Mountaineering Leader Award and I try to get out climbing at least 3 times a week! Working at High Sports keeps me up to date with all new techniques and close to the best people in the industry.

    Being brought up on a farm in Australia gave me a love for the outdoors. I miss the sun and surf so I try to make up for it by getting as muddy as I can on long treks in the countryside. Just got a new puppy who I’m determined to train to carry my climbing gear on the long walks from the car to the crags. Got my eye on a doggy harness so maybe even some climbing action!

  • Dusty Talbot: Senior Instructor

    Dusty Talbot: Senior Instructor

    Summary

    I initially caught the climbing bug on a mobile wall at Glastonbury festival and since tasting my first ascent have been climbing for seven years, working in a senior capacity at Elmbridge for around three years. Though primarily an indoor climber (largely due to a son of 18 months!), I relish the chance to get outdoors when I can to test my mettle against the elements, be it sport and trad on Dorset lime or boulder on the Peak’s grit. Goal for next year: fit in as many trips as humanly possible!

  • Sally Talbot: Senior Supervisor

    Sally Talbot: Senior Supervisor

    Summary

    I entered the team at what was a crucial point for the centre, and have now worked as Senior Supervisor and group co-ordinator at the centre for almost three years, using my wealth of financial and accounting experience.
    Music, festivals and motorbikes are my passion, and I’ve abseiled in Dorset, but my family is my life and at Elmbridge we are one big happy family and I am most definitely Mum!
