We are delighted to announce 23 year old Scottish climber Uisdean Hawthorn as brand ambassador.
Uisdean grew up on a small farm in the west coast of Scotland. Participating in all types of activity’s from gathering sheep to rugby and football. The one thing he didn’t do growing up was climbing. He started climbing age 19 while doing his joinery apprenticeship and quickly developed into one of Scotland’s most active winter climbers.
Uisdean has developed a passion for thin ice and has excelled in this style of climbing. Over the past three seasons he has racked up a number of significant repeats and first ascents in Scotland as well as climbing a number of north faces in the Alps and Canadian Rockies. Scottish winter climbing and big mountain routes have become his main focus. 2017 is set to be a busy year for Uisdean with expeditions to Patagonia, the Alps and potentially The Himalaya in summer, as well as scaling the Scottish mountains.
We are looking forward to follow his journey and climbing carrier!
