Name: Joseph Xiberras
Years Climbing: 8 years
Local Crag: Raven Tor, which is surprisingly only a 55 minute drive out of South Manchester.
Favourite Climbing Destination: Cantabria - It’s where I’ve climbed most outdoors. But, I’m still yet to properly explore other higher profile destinations.
Best Climbing Experience: Hard to single it down but last week’s circuit session was pretty transcendental.
Favourite Moon Climbing Product: Rainshadow Pants but they are being pressed hard by the new Samurai shorts. It’s always nice climb comfy!
What Is It About Climbing You Love: Having complete freedom on the wall, just you and the climb. I don’t know many other sports in which interacting with the challenge is as fulfilling as the succeeding in the challenge itself.
Career Highlights: - Getting on the GB Junior Team for the first time back in Youth C.
- Climbing my first 8a outdoors, Troncomóvil at Cicera.
- 8th place in Combined at the Youth World Championships 2019 in Arco
When Not Climbing You Like to: Read, skate, be around people.
