Nathan Phillips

Team GB & White Spider-Sponsored Climber

Nathan has been a White Spider-sponsored climber since 2016, and has been route setting at our centres regularly throughout.  However, his history of climbing goes way further back than that.  Climbing since he was 6, and competing from the age of 7, his focus turned to bouldering in his mid-teens. This turned out to be a great decision, when in 2013, he became the first ever GB climber to win gold in international event at the European Youth Cup.

A member of the TeamGB bouldering team, he competes all around the world in World Cup events, most notably qualifying for the finals and finishing 6th overall in Innsbruck in 2018.  If that wasn’t enough of an achievement for 2018, won the British Bouldering Championships the same season!

Nathan’s climbing has been going from strength to strength, and we’re super excited to support him through the 2019-2020 season, and watch him build on a fantastic 2018-2019 season!  Keep up with Nathan’s latest news through his blog, exclusive to White Spider Climbing!
