‘What I love about climbing is that you can travel half-way across the world and make a connection with random strangers.’Jerome started climbing at a terrific rock-climbing birthday party at the young age of 14 at the Westway Climbing Centre. Once they finished the cake and made it to the top, Jerome has hooked.
‘If I could be any animal I would be a flea - imagine the dyno you could pull off!’Although dedicated to his training, Jerome enjoys moonlighting as a paramedic, as it allows him to bypass the speed limits at any time with flashing blue lights. Jerome still claims his biggest climbing achievement is flashing Marie Rose 6a in Fontainebleau.
