Continued Professional Development, Rock Climbing, Bolting, New Routes

Placing, Removing, and Testing fixed protection for sport climbing.

Matt has been involved in climbing new routes since the late 80s:

"I find one of the most compelling things in climbing, is finding a route that noone else has done, climbing it and documenting it. Whenever I go to a climbing area, I am less interested in the existing routes, than the gaps between them.

As a kid, I used a hand drill to place the odd 8mm bolt (sometimes probably not very well!) to protect the hardest moves if I couldn't climb the route without it.

In the 90s, I got involved with the North Wales bolt fund, and started placing bolts more to create safe routes - although we did still keep them pretty runout sometimes!

Things have moved on these days, and I now devote a lot of my time to making safe old routes, using environmentally sustainable bolts and removing old fixed gear to "clean up" our beautiful crags."
