Other people involved in climbing inspire us. Professional climbers, coaches, route setters, photographers, competition climbers, young climbers, older climbers, those who work in the industry, those who just spend the whole of their spare time doing it. Their stories and experiences can offer us an insight into our own climbing, or suggest a new opportunity or just make us nod knowingly; there are things all climbers can share.
We wanted to talk to as many as we could and asked them all the same 10 questions. We started by interviewing some of the UK’s top competition climbers at Battle of Britain 2018. We’ll add more as we do them. If you know someone inspiring and want to interview them for us, let us know.
We’ve been surprised by some of the things we’ve found out so far, such as how many people get into climbing as a hobby from just having attended a birthday party and just how polarised views on avocados are!
