For the last two decades, Ben Moon’s name has been inextricably linked to climbing. Indeed, since 1984 when, as an 18 year old, he made the first ascent of Statement of Youth 8a, Ben has been in the vanguard of British and world sports climbing and bouldering. Since then he has made climbing his life, putting up many of the world’s hardest routes, including ‘Hubble’, the first 8c+ in 1990. A few years ago, he decided to concentrate on, what to him is the purest form of climbing, bouldering. In many ways Ben has defined this movement, leading the way with his extraordinary problems in Fontainebleau, the USA, India and Britain.
