‘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 the Westway Climbing Centre in West London aged 15, where he still works occasionally as an instructor. He was hooked straight away, but it wasn’t until starting at Loughborough University age 18 that the addiction took hold. He now travels as often as possible, seeking out the best rock the world has to offer.
‘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.. He dabbles in most forms of the sport, but his main love is sport climbing and Deep Water Soloing. The bigger, the badder, the better. To date he has climbed over 100 routes in the 8th grade across three continents.
