United Kingdom
Ben is one of Britain’s most iconic climbers. During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Ben helped to push the standards of rock climbing forwards, establishing many hard new lines in the UK and overseas. These achievements culminated in his climb of the world’s first 8c+ with Hubble (now widely considered to be 9a).
In later years Ben focused on bouldering, achieving a number of hard first ascents such as Black Lung (8b), Cypher (8b) and Voyager SDS (8b+)
After some years focusing on other things, Ben recently returned to form with his ascent of Rainshadow (9a, Malham), only the 4th ascent the route had seen and 25 years to the day after his ascent of Hubble.
