Having grown up in the Peak District, it is no surprise that James made a name for himself on “Gods own rock”.

Aged 15 he donned his first pair of rock shoes and quickly started climbing some of Gritstones hardest and boldest routes, with unswerving enthusiasm and an innate ability of moving on rock.

Having succeded some of the worlds hardest traditional routes, James shifted his focus to include bouldering, sport, and multi-pitch, and currently continues his quest to climb hard rock, all over the world!

James is proud to work with The North Face, La Sportiva, Wild Country, Edelrid Ropes, Adidas Eyewear, and Eat Natural.  If you want the best, click on the links below…
