James Poole

Glasgow, UK

I have been active in the outdoors since a young age and enjoy providing similar opportunities to others. I have worked at various outdoor centres in the UK and New Zealand with an extremely diverse range of clients, including those with physical or learning impairments. Adventure sports provide an abundance of physical and mental health benefits which I believe everyone could benefit from. I am currently based in Glasgow but can travel if needed.

Equipment provided

If working at the gym the client will need to either provide their own harness and climbing shoes or hire them from the gym (normally about £5 depending on the gym), I will provide belay devices. If working outside the client will need to have a helmet, harness and appropriate footwear, we will provide ropes and all other safety equipment.



I am happy to work with any adult who is in the early stages of their climbing journey in any and all climbing disciplines. This could be introducing the sport to absolute beginners, starting to look at anchor building in traditional climbing or coaching climbing movement. Really I'm happy to discuss with the client to work out what is needed. I am happy to work either in a climbing gym or outside on real rock.
