This is James Pearson. Not only is he one of Britain's strongest climbers, he is one of the few adults who can convincingly rock a candy necklace. Just kidding, sort of.
In this video James revisits a few different spots, including Pembroke in South Wales where he completed numerous on-sights of E8's in 2011. In between climbs he jokes around, chats about his obsession with climbing, the diversity of the sport, getting fit, and his current focus on multi-pitch routes.
Pay close attention to his discussion on the business side of being a pro climber, it's refreshingly honest. Also, don't miss him woking the devlishly bold E10, 'The Groove' in the Peak District at 2:30. That's a big pull off a small pebble.
