Welcoming Cailean Harker To Team Bloc

Here at Bloc Climbing, we feel privileged to say that we have the very experienced route setter and coach Cailean Harker on board with us to fashion some inspiring problems in order to get the very best from our exciting and exclusive structures.


From the very easy to the ridiculously hard, Cailean endeavours to make his routes and boulder problems interesting, thought provoking and challenging yet attainable. His experience of climbing on many different rock types all over the world helps him to replicate realistic outdoor climbing movement and his competition experience helps him set funky, crowd pleasing and well graded climbs.

Sponsored by La Sportiva, Mammut  and Liquid Grip , Cailean’s climbing has been going from strength to strength, recently completing hard projects, The Joker (8a) and Careless Torque (8a).

No stranger to hard trad, he has also ticked the frankly terrifying and notorious ‘Hard Grit’ Classic Gaia.
