Steve McClure

Steve McClure is one of the best rock-climbers in the world, having climbed the hardest sport route in the UK at 9b, numerous new routes at the grade of 9a and onsighted many at 8b+. However, despite being better known for his sport climbing achievements, you might also find him off on an adventure traditional climbing in Pembroke, multi-pitching in Morocco, or sleeping on a portaledge on a 1000m wall in Greenland. Having climbed for over 45 years, Steve has seen the sport change and grow, but also kept up with the pace, and now, even at 50, he remains one of the UK’s top performers.
