Needle Sports' Staff - David Jones

David started climbing at the age of 14 and entered several of the local CABL comps. Bouldering is still a keen interest but so now is deep water soloing and rock climbing both here and abroad. Highlights include The Diedre (E2) at Kilnsey, The Strangler (E4) at Stanage, Electric Warrior (F7b) at Chapel Head and Chiselling the Dragon (F7c) at Malham.
