Earlier this year Scottish climber Robbie Philips climbed the iconic 'Punks in the Gym' (8b+) in Arapiles, Australia. The route is named as a slur at strong climbers at the climbing wall who can’t actually perform on real rock and takes both strength and skill to climb. We chatted to Robbie about his ascent plus the preparation he did for it and also asked him what he’s up to next. Put it this way, it doesn’t sound like he’s going to be resting on his laurels - he’s a man with some big plans!
