There’s no doubt about it… we have great jobs and we’re very often in the wall, climbing with each other and everyone else in there. As a team we enjoy working hard to provide you with the best possible service, from building buckets of excitement in kids parties to delivering supportive coaching during public climbing times. We wouldn’t be here without you and we’re privileged you’ve chosen to climb with us.
Wall manager & climbing coach
If you’ve ever phoned SCW then will have almost certainly spoken with Tim, who deals with all the bookings and enquiries, including the Junior Climbing Clubs. Tim also runs the Southampton Junior Climbing Squad and is passionate about working with children from all backgrounds. Tim is one of the partners of SCW and will always go the extra mile to ensure customers are happy with our service.
There are very few people at SCW who haven’t met with Frank and probably been helped by him in some way. Often in the wall on weeknight evenings, Frank very often provides support and encouragement to public climbers Additionally, Frank has spent many hours (and days), working to develop new features in the wall.
Alex is a passionate climber and particularly enjoys solving bouldering problems, taking a couple of trips to Fontainebleau (the French bouldering mecca) each year and visiting a wide variety of UK & worldwide climbing locations, too. Alex loves to introduce new people to climbing, and if you climb with him at SCW you’ll certainly pick up some great tips.
Tom is keen rock climber, mountain biker, kayaker, skier and much more. He is a regular instructor with our Junior Climbing Club and is always full of new and innovative ideas to engage the young climbers that he works with at SCW. As with all the instructors at SCW, Tom is genuinely passionate about climbing and will happily show you the ropes!
Climbing instructor & SCW partner
Our very own man of mystery – James is one of the partners of SCW and is taking a couple of years off to work as part of a team sailing around the world. From time to time he reports back and lets us know just how hard work it is… but we’ve seen your tan, Mr Baker! One day our bronzed traveller may return. 🙂
