"My first trad lead was right here at the Roaches. It was one of the most memorable experiences, a total rush.
I’ve done a lot of bouldering, but recently I’ve been really getting into my trad. It’s just a bit more adventurous, more edgy, and I didn’t find that in bouldering, because it is really about that physical challenge. And I kind of plateaued, I didn’t really progress in bouldering and that made be feel quite down."
"Would you say you are emotionally attached to climbing?"
"Yea incredibly so. It’s an important part of my life. It’s quite hard to explain... It’s so many different feelings."
