I write for Climbing Gear Reviews and have written for several online magazines, including UKC and The Climbing Depot.

In my eight years experience as co-editor and senior writer at I have gained a good reputation with PR and marketing departments for producing on time and engaging articles which highlight product for maximum SEO.
