I'm Rory, and I created Inside Climbing, an independent journalism publication focused on climbing as a competitive sport, covering stories around indoor and competition climbing.

I discovered climbing during my PhD in Sheffield, UK, at the "old age" of 25. I fell in love with the activity and the community surrounding it. Climbing is "my church": I know I can go anywhere in the world, and there is a climbing wall; I will find my people. I feel very lucky that I found this community.

Now, I want to give back.

With Inside Climbing, I cover climbing as a sport inspired by The Escape Collective and The Defector.

I will connect you to the sport and those who make it happen. I will cover all three disciplines, Boulder, Lead and Speed and I will share the stories of those who make the sport happen. Together we will dive deep into the stories behind the competitions and the indoor climbing wall.

If you are interested in joining this journey, please take the time to explore the site.
