JIM POPE

Jim Pope, now 19 has quietly risen through the ranks of the UK climbing scene. Widely regarded as one of the bright stars of British climbing, Jim has represented his country in both bouldering and lead teams at Junior and Senior level...Winning his first European Youth Cup Gold medal, in Mitterdorf, Austria in 2015! 

Rewind some years and you’d find a 6 year-old Jim Pope bounding around in oversized
climbing shoes with a cheeky grin...Several years later, he still has that grin, but after a lot
of hard work, dedicated training and being mentored by some of Britain’s best, he now has
5 national titles to his name, has competed at an international level for 7 years in all 3 disciplines (Lead, Boulder & Speed). Jim is also a keen outdoor climber, with redpoint ascents of f8c+ and on-sighted f8b+

So what does the future hold for Jim, who knows, but he’s certainly making a lot more noise
these days!
