Meet the Team

Chris (26)

Founder

I founded Freeklime to share my endless passion and enthusiasm for climbing. I’ve been climbing for 15 years and I love all of the climbing styles, from indoor bouldering to Alpinism, and everything in between. My role at Freeklime is to develop our brand, pursue business development opportunities and deliver world class bouldering in an inclusive setting. It’s been a challenging 3 years, opening a start-up business in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, but I’m really optimistic for what the future holds for Freeklime.

Tiff (35)

Team leader & Head Route setter

I joined the Freeklime team upon the launch of the business and have been here ever since! My responsibility is to get the best out of the fantastic team around me and work alongside them to devise initiatives, social nights and events which all feed into the Freeklime community. As a member of the setting team, our job is to craft boulder problems which inspire creative climbing movement, while not compromising on safety and accessibility.

Emily (23)

Marketing assistant & climbing coach

I joined Freeklime in October 2020 while studying for my masters at the University of Huddersfield. I have 2 job roles at Freeklime and I love the variety that brings! I really enjoy the process of working with young people on their climbing technique and seeing their confidence grow week by week. I also work with Chris to deliver engaging content for our social media channels and explore business development opportunities which enrich the Freeklime brand and grow our presence in the local community.

Chloe (28)

Climbing coach

I have been with Freeklime for nearly 3 years now and I love being able to share my love of climbing with young people, those new to the sport or anyone just wanting to improve. I started climbing at university and enjoy climbing on ropes as well as bouldering.

Caroline (23)

Route setter and climbing coach

I joined the team in May 2021 and I work in the coaching and route setting teams. I’ve always been very outdoorsy and was a dog walker before I joined Freeklime! I have been climbing for 3 years and I absolutely love it, but I particularly enjoy bouldering. The opportunity to inspire young climbers through my coaching and route setting is amazing and it's great to see their progression.

Chiron (24)

Head climbing coach

I have been at Freeklime for over 2 years now and my job role is to oversee the coaching and instructing at Freeklime to ensure we deliver the most inclusive and highest quality sessions possible. As health and safety coordinator I work with Chris, Tiff and our Technical Advisor, Danny, to ensure the centre is as safe as possible for all you guys. Yeh, I’m the paperwork guy!

Santi (19)

Climbing coach

I joined the team in October 2021 when I moved to Huddersfield for university. I grew up in North Wales, a stone’s throw from some of the best walking, scrambling and climbing in the UK. I love all forms of climbing and have recently been getting into traditional climbing and exploring the local gritstone outcrops around Huddersfield. I really enjoy the community feel at Freeklime and am excited to grow and develop my climbing and instructing skills.
