Mischa Hawker-Yates

Mischa Hawker-Yates is a climber and adventurer who cut his teeth on the abrasive gritstone outcrops and quarries of the north of England. He started climbing through university and quickly developed a taste for bold, spicey routes with minimal gear and maximum commitment.

His climbing achievements include multiple E5 onsights and E7 redpoints across the UK including routes such as Hairless Heart E5/5c and White Wand E5/6a on the Peak grit, Poetry Pink E5/6b and The Spirit Level E7/6b on the Llanberis Slate.

Mischa recently moved to southern Germany and is currently spending his time pulling on pockets in the Frankenjura and exploring the long, exposed multi-pitches in the Austrian/Swiss Alps.
