Meet the team

If you aren't lucky enough to have passed through Hathersage lately, you may not have had the chance to meet our motley crew. We think they're an amazing bunch of people, and this is where you can find out why.

Between them, Outside's staff have enough home grown expertise to cover bouldering, trad rock climbing, sport climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, hill walking, trekking expeditions and running up (and down) fells and mountains, plus all forms of camping from the car to the bivvy ledge.

They have some amazing stories to tell, and along the way they've also thoroughly tested the best climbing, walking and camping equipment so that you can read their honest opinions right here.

Just click on a name to find out more.
