THE CHIMERA CREW

MEET THE TEAM THAT MAKE OUR CENTRE A GREAT EXPERIENCE

CHRIS SEARLE

CREW / MANAGING DIRECTOR

FAVOURITE CLIMB / FUTEBOL, FONTAINEBLEAU, FRANCE

Chris’ climbing career began when he was just 10 years old when he attended a climbing course at Bowles Rocks, from day one at the crag, he was hooked!  His ambition is to
climb V12.

ANDRE HEDGER

CREW / COMPANY DIRECTOR

FAVOURITE CLIMB / THE NOSE, EL CAPITAN, USA

It’s safe to say that Andre was an early starter into the climbing world. He has been climbing for many years, starting from when his dad took him as soon as he was able to walk!  Training hard as ever, Andre still wishes to tick the magical E10.

STUART HOWARD

CREW / CHIMERA COACH & SQUAD MANAGER

FAVOURITE CLIMB / POINT FIVE GULLY, BEN NEVIS, SCOTLAND

With a background in new Alpine Routes, Stuart is used to be in distant places which are neither indoors or involve bouldering.  He greatly involves coaching others and helping their development, while the Eiger North Face still looms as an ambition.

DANNY LITCHFIELD

CREW / CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER

FAVOURITE CLIMB / JINGO WOBBLY, HARRISONS ROCKS,
SOUTHERN SANDSTONE

Danny ensures that everything in the centre is designed carefully and works correctly!  On top of that he indulges in his passion for snow sports with alpine trips each winter, while holding the long term aim to climb simply for the fun of it!

MATT TULLIS

CREW / CENTRE STAFF & COACH

FAVOURITE CLIMB / MODULAR, FONTAINEBLEAU, FRANCE

Matt is the third generation of his family to instruct climbing in the South East.  Having climbed since the age of 12, his experience and knowledge is highly valued as he assists older and younger climbers alike to develop their skills.  His current ambition is to climb Font 7C.

AMBER BOULDERSTONE

CREW / CENTRE STAFF & COACH

FAVOURITE CLIMB / ANY CLIMB THAT’S TAKEN MORE THAN ONE ATTEMPT TO COMPLETE!

Started climbing trees as a kid to rescue her very clumsy cat…

Climbing ambitions – to be as strong as the Orc, to heelhook like Andre, and to dyno like Matt Tullis!

NINA ROGERS

CREW / CENTRE STAFF & INSTRUCTOR

FAVOURITE CLIMB / WOOLY BEAR, HARRISONS ROCK,
SOUTHERN SANDSTONE

Nina is the young pup of the team and is similarly excitable when it comes to climbing!  Her enthusiasm is endless and her drive at the moment is to train hard, push her limits and climb around the globe.
