Weekend Stoker: Paraclimber Phil Mitchell Boulders

Phil Mitchell bouldering in the U.K.

Paraclimber Phil Mitchell and film maker George Sewell travel to Northumberland for a weekend of climbing and to get away from it all.

Mitchell was training hard for the world cup so was happy to take a break from the hard work to potter around somewhere new.

“I’ve never really hurt myself,” said Mitchell about a recent injury.

“I really quite badly injured my ankle last year when I fell and landed between the two crash mats rather than on them, and I was out for a while after that.

“But you’ve just got to be brave and pick yourself up, because you get battered quite a lot, and that’s really just part of the sport.”
