For the 2nd episode of our podcast, we're excited to welcome British Bouldering Champion 2016 & The Arch sponsored athlete, Matt Cousins.

Matt is understated and modest about his achievements in the competition scene and on the rock, which makes for a refreshing point of view. In this shorter episode, we get straight into it & find out about how Matt discovered climbing at school, the mental techniques he uses to approach challenging climbs, unexpected similarities between competition and solo climbing, and his advice to any climbers looking to improve their performance. 

Matt is sponsored by The Arch, Scarpa and Friction Labs.
