Meet The Team

  • India Herbing - Centre Manager

    India Herbing - Centre Manager

    I’ve been climbing for a little over two years, and during that time I’ve been lucky enough to live and climb in some pretty amazing places not least Edinburgh and Kendal. What I love most about climbing is that there is always somewhere to go, something to learn, and something to improve- for every climber, and at every level. A bit of a scaredy-cat, I’m happiest on top-rope, but can be coerced into bouldering and leading (indoors) with small bribes such as cake....

  • Steve Hart: Senior Instructor

    Steve Hart: Senior Instructor

    Summary

    I have been climbing for over four years, started climbing indoors but now climbs outdoors (mostly bouldering) at every opportunity. When not climbing I will usually be found setting new problems on the St Albans boulder wall.
