About the team
Co-owner of Eden Rock, Katie was born and raised in sunny Northumberland. Loves climbing, snowboarding, bobble hats and coffee. Kindly sponsored by Beta climbing, Tenaya and Snap.
Assistant manager, coach extraordinaire and personal fitness trainer Rich is the man with a plan. Now setting routes at Eden you'll find out his style of climbing is 'funky'. He's also the head coach of our fabulous Youth Team.
Doesn't need much of an introduction; Co founder of Beastmaker, and he's not a bad climber either. Sponsored by Scarpa.
Horticulturist Gem when not covered in mud is covered in chalk. Coach for the infamous Eden Rock Ladies Night and scoffer of cakes.
Our most relaxed edition to Eden Rock. Owain is a poet, short story writer, lover of (some) jazz and super keen climber. And a budding barrista, be sure to compliment him on his latte art.
Working to become a mountain goddess Gemma is coaching at Eden and creating lots of climbing challenges for kids and adults alike.
Climber, mountaineer, kayaker...general outdoors man Sam when not in the great outdoors will now be found at Eden dispensing knowledge and wisdom, left, right and centre.
Super strong Rosie (a.k.a mother of Dexter the Dog) has started coaching and setting for Eden whilst teaching Spanish freelance. You'll see her floating up walls making it look a breeze.
Abbie has graduated from our Youth Team to staff member, you'll see her behind the desk with a huge smile on her face. She's a dab hand at a perfect americano (you can never have too much crema!).
Laura is our pizza chef. She handles the pizza dough like a pro.
Jonny, an instructor who is always full of energy and smiles is also our resident artist. He is currently transforming the kids room.
Alex, our super strong instructor from Cornwall who can tell you about any crag in the South West! Normally found at the 'Stone' most evenings!
Sian is our resident yoga instructor and can often be found doing crazy core exercises in the fitness area. Sian is looking forward to an epic bouldering trip to Switzerland this year!
