Leading climber joins mountaineering executive
Bookmark and Share
Star climber Rosie Goolden has been appointed to the Mountaineering Council of Scotland as its director for mountain safety and training, the body has announced.

Ms Goolden started out as a climber at just 15 and achieved her Mountain Instructor certificate at the age of 22, launching a climbing events business known as Chicks Unleashed in 2004.

She joins the board as director of mountain safety and training, replacing the recently departed Graeme Morrrison.

Commenting on her appointment, Rosie said her philosophy was that people gain confidence in the mountain environment by having "fun".

She added: "I am delighted and inspired to be part of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland and feel I have reached a time and level of experience where I will be able to contribute a great deal."

Those keen on taking up the sport in Scotland may wish to get some climbing gear from the Go Outdoors stores in Clydebank or Coatbridge.

Among the events run by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland is the Scottish Youth Climbing Championship 2010, which takes place on May 15th at Ratho in Edinburgh.
