Needle Sports' Staff - Trevor Suddaby

Trevor Suddaby, Needle Sports' Shop Manager, was born and brought up in Cumbria and has climbed in the Lake District since he was 12. He has also climbed in many other areas of the UK, Europe and the USA. If the Lakes crags are wet he will most likely be heading for Yorkshire limestone - usually Malham or Kilnsey crags. Memorable recent leads include Obsession (7b+ Malham), Song For Europe (7b+ Chapel Head), La Demande (Verdon) and Shaken Not Stirred (E6 6b Iving Crag). Trevor is also a keen boulderer and is pretty handy on a slack line. In his youth before he took up rock climbing he was a champion orienteer. Trevor has contributed many gear reviews to Climb Magazine.
