All our coaches at Redpoint are qualified with a minimum of the Climbing Wall Development Instructor award, issued by the Mountain Training awarding body, as well as being trained Foundation coaches.

Our coaches are trained to develop growth mindsets in the people we teach, empowering you to see failures as stepping stones on a path of continuous improvement.

The team are happy to coach at any level but each has their own area they like to focus on. Check out each of the coaches below to see who might be the best fit for you.


“I’m Ben, the head coach at Redpoint. My coaching philosophy aligns with the Japanese word Kaizen, which means continuous improvement. Basically, you can always make things better, more efficient, stronger, etc. My focus is on making small improvements over time, and I always keep things fun!

As a BMC & NICAS coach developer, my main skillset is coaching under-18s from beginner to elite level. I absolutely love seeing children learn and adapt climbing skills for the rest of their lives. I aim to develop a safe environment where climbers can learn by self-discovery, giving them the skills and experience to adapt to any situation.

Currently, I am one of a small group of coaches across the UK who are on the Mountain Training Performance coach pathway. With this skill set, I’m also happy to create personalised training plans for any level of climber.

I live and breathe climbing and can’t wait to help you or your child in whatever way I can!”


“My name’s Jodie, and I love climbing in all its forms! I was introduced to it on beautiful Cornish sea cliffs, yet I am just as likely to be bouldering indoors or sport climbing.

As a queer and neurodivergent person, I strive to create a safe and welcoming space within coaching, allowing those who have felt excluded within this space the chance to develop. I aim to help in a way that best facilitates each individual and their needs, especially those who are newer to being coached, or to climbing in general.

I have spent a lot of time working on my own fear and head game in climbing. This has put me in a great position to provide climbers with tactics to tackle their own climbing challenges, such as fear of falling or pushing into new grades. I am excited to help people give themselves the best possible chance for success, whatever that means for them.”


Bio coming soon!


Growing up in north Wales there are not too many things, but there is plenty of climbing, so that is what I’ve done pretty much my whole life.

I’ve worked in outdoor activities, climbing centres and freelance out in the wild. Climbing outside is my passion, from pushing the limits on sport or setting out for a day of trad faff, but I do enjoy climbing inside, whether it be endurance session on the auto belays or projecting a route, I understand the unique benefits that indoor climbing brings. I’ve been coaching people of all ages to climb indoor and outdoor for over 10 years, I have plenty of expertise in teaching, route reading, stretch training, power endurance and movement.

I have a very relaxed style of coaching that is balanced with a massive amount of enthusiasm and passion for climbing.


“I am a friendly and approachable all-round climber with loads of experience in trad, sport and bouldering. I am passionate about climbing and can’t wait to help you reach your ultimate potential.

I have been climbing for 12 years and coaching for 5. I have helped set up and run youth development squads and taught everyone from 4 year olds climbing for the first time to 75 year olds who want tips on lead climbing technique which has given me a wealth of experience to draw from.

I focus on utilising body position to climb efficiently rather than relying on strength to get you to the top. Balancy slab climbs and tenuous slopers are my forte and I can help them be yours as well. I use my experience to identify your strengths and weaknesses to help you maximise your climbing ability and get the most out of your sessions.”
