Hi, I'm Abi, the Climbing Manager at Surrey Summit. I've got over 20 years of climbing experience, and I'm still mad as ever for it!
I love seeing new people experience climbing, and then helping them to develop their skills. There's nothing better than helping someone follow their passion and motivate them to keep going, it's something I love about my job.
I'm Kieran, the youngest member of the Surrey Summit Team. I bring bags of enthusiasm to my job, psyched for climbing is an understatement. I love coaching and training climbers of all abilities, from first-timers to regular visitors. I'm always trying to find new ways to challenge myself and make climbing even more fun!
My name is Thomas Biffin, I have been teaching climbing for 7 years now and have been an outdoor sports coach for 11 years. My first job was as a kayaking instructor and I have taught this on canals, lakes, rivers and on the sea. I then went on to teach sailing at Hawley Lake for a few years.
I did a climbing course at Plas y Brenin in North Wales as I had always been interested in climbing but only ever climbed indoors with the scouts. This really sparked my enthusiasm for the sport and drove me to pursue a career in climbing.
After that I moved to the Lake District where I discovered my love for rock climbing. After spending a summer there climbing everyday it was sunny and kayaking everyday it was raining (which was a lot!) I gained my SPA climbing qualification and started teaching climbing full time.
I then moved to the forest of dean and lived in the Wye valley for two years, climbing regularly and getting lots of experience teaching people to kayak down white water rivers and climb up cliffs.
I then decided I wanted to focus more on coaching so I decided to get a job at Surrey Summit where I could teach children and adults regularly, see them progress and get better and better.
I have climbed in Yorkshire, Lancashire, the Lake District, Scotland, North Wales, Devon, Tunbridge Wells, The Alps and the Verdon gorge.
