James Rudge – Local team GB Paraclimber
Paraclimbing is on the up and inclusion is something that climbing gyms and event organisers are taking more and more seriously and local GB Paraclimber James Rudge is a big driver of it within the community.
In this talk, James will be sharing experiences from his 5 years on the GB Paraclimbing team and from his 7 years working in inclusive climbing.
In 2018, James co-founded Bristol inclusive Thrill Seekers and has been welcoming people of all backgrounds and ability levels into Redpoint ever since. In this talk, he will share some stories from that journey and discuss some of the difficulties adaptive climbers face.
Expect some videos from incredible paraclimbers as well as an introduction into the world of Paraclimbing itself.
James is an open book and as well as sharing his own difficulties and experiences he wants to give people a chance to ask anything they are curious about.
