    Richard Gannon: Duty Manager

    Summary

    I have been climbing for nearly 10 years but only took it up seriously when High Sports St Albans opened up on my doorstep. Since then I have been climbing in Greece, Spain and France as well as many rainy weekends around the UK. My greatest climbing achievement to date is redpointing Rubicon in the Peak District…. this has lead to an obsession with peak limestone which exists to this day.

  • 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.
