"Hey, I’m Reece, I’m the one who's probably looking tired after getting up at 6 am every day with my 2 kids. In the little free time that I have, I enjoy watching sci-fi, reading fantasy books, playing video games, and messing around with playing cards.

I started climbing here at Highball with my wife back in January 2015. After a few sessions, we both became thoroughly addicted and climbed here a minimum of 5 times a week for around a year. This has drastically stopped since parenthood, but now I have got the joy of introducing them into climbing too.

I’m predominantly a boulderer but dabble with ropes occasionally. My favorite aspect of climbing is problem-solving a challenging route and the satisfaction of completing it. Plus it’s a great workout whilst having fun doing it, what's not to love!"
