Jerry Moffatt

At the forefront of british climbing form the early eighties to mid-nineties. Along with Ben Moon Jerry established many hard firsts in the UK, Germany, France and USA including historic ascents such as The Face, Revelations and Liquid Ambar.

He was an early proponent of bouldering in it's own right. From early ascents on the Bowderstone he went on to put up a host of hard classics such as The Ace at Stanage and Dominator in Yosemite.

Features in The Real Thing, Stone Love, 80's Birth of Extreme, Statement of Youth.
