Dave MacLeod

Based in the highlands of Scotland, Dave is arguably the UK's best all-round climber.

Mixing it up between 9a sport routes, Font 8B+ boulders, E11 trad routes, grade XI mixed routes and hundreds of first ascents around Scotland and the greater mountain ranges of the world. He is also a renowned climbing coach, writing the popular blog The online climbing coach since 2006. His first book, 9 out of 10 climbers make the same mistakes is an international bestselling climbing improvement text. His second book, Make or Break, is now the injured climbers' go-to source of advice and encouragement. Some of Dave’s best known routes include Rhapsody, the world’s first E11 trad route, Echo Wall, E11 on Ben Nevis, The Longhope Route E9 on St John’s Head, Project Fear 8a+ on the north face of Cima Ovest and Disco 2000 8a+ in Arctic Norway.
