Don't just hope and pray for the best in your climbing, take action based on experience with our climbers on the rainbow project: Autism At Height.

Paraclimbers to summit the Eiger)
|Jay on the Eiger|
"Working every week with Jamie in North Wales, around UK competitions, climbing in the Pyrenees and finally sharing the summit of the notorious Eiger, has been life changing for both of us. I understand Jamie and his perspective, sometimes more than I understand the 'neurotically' shaped ideas of what is 'normal' in life and society. First we built mutual trust, then friendship, then we focused on driving his performance in climbing.
Jamie has won every competition he has entered and now climbed the Eiger and that is why he is a key part of our project. Autism at Height has and is learning so much from Jamie and his perseverance, kindness and basic will to improve his own and others lives like his, is what makes my work so meaningful and worthwhile..."

Now based in Northamptonshire, we are hoping to develop the project in England as well as planned trips further afield. Please get in touch if the Autism At Height project is of interest to you or someone you know.
