You can learn more about Chris below... 

I’ve been climbing for over 20 years and in that time have been a competitor, event organiser and administrator.  Between 2005-2007 I held positions on the SCA Executive Board, and in 2015 was a Founding Board Member of Sport Climbing Tasmania, a position which I’ve held until accepting the Executive Officer role with Sport Climbing Australia.

I’m passionate about the sport and seeing it grow in Australia.  I’ve been privileged over my time in the sport to have met and been mentored by some talented and passionate people, both in the physical aspects of climbing, its administration and its values.  These mentors, now friends, have helped shaped who I am.  I want to see climbing continue to develop, and at the same time not lose site of the values and relationships it enables within our community.  

The growth of climbing in Australia and inclusion in the Olympics over the past year are both tell-tale signs as to where the sport is heading.  I’m excited to be a part of it, and look forward to working with climbers, event organisers and gyms around the country to shape the sport in Australia for generations of climbers to come
