GRIT Collective was formed in 2022 with the aim of delivering a message; that EVERYONE can climb!

We will be running a host of sessions and events that give people a platform to try climbing. We want to use our experiences to educate people in the importance of creating positive mindsets and to help people realise their potential. 


James Rudge is the director of GRIT collective and has been working in inclusive climbing for several years.

Having been born without the lower part of his left arm, James saw the impact he could have on others and wants to use his experiences to inspire people..

James has been running a charity for the past few years that puts on inclusive climbing sessions for people with physical impairments and learning difficulties. He also competes on the GB Paraclimbing team and is no stranger to adaptive climbing!
