Meet Climb Cornwall
Climb Cornwall is a community, both for those who we instruct and those who deliver the instruction.
All of our coaches and instructors are employed because they share our ideals about quality instruction, professionalism, and client-lead coaching approach, whether they are part of the core staff below or our larger group of freelancers.
Jay is the Director of Climb Cornwall Ltd and is responsible for the safe and continued operation of the company. This spans everything from marketing (his least favourite job) all the way to actual product delivery (his favourite job!).
He began properly climbing in 1997 (discounting many tree-based escapades throughout his childhood) and hasn't really stopped ever since. Soon discovering a passion for instructing equal to that for adventure and the outdoor environment, he gained his first instructor qualification in 2004 and the idea of Climb Cornwall began.
Always seeking to learn more and improve on past experiences, Jay holds the Mountaineering Instructor Award, is a Mountain Training Development Coach, and a Certified Coach and Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming.
He sits on the Board of Directors for Clean Ascent - a CIC with the mission statement of "improving lives" and is one of the founding members of the Charity Climbability, that seeks to remove barriers to participation in climbing activities for all.
