The committee of 2007/2008 are as follows:

Joe Marsh - Chairman
I'm in my 3rd year studying Aerospace Engineering and I've been part of the USMC for about 2 years. I got dragged down to the climbing wall by my room mate (Iceman) back when I started uni and I've been hooked ever since. I really enjoy pushing myself to my limits, whether I'm bouldering or doing routes. My perfect climbing day is chilling with good friends, playing on the boulders in Fontainebleau and eating baguettes.
Nathan "Gnat" Wallace - Secretary
Iím in my second year studying Financial Maths, I started climbing in September of my first year and have been doing it ever since. I started sport leading in November of my first year but I really improved my leading skills during the summer trip, SPLAT to ailefroide in the French alps. By the end of this trip I had significantly improved and was leading 5b and seconding 6a. I started trad leading a few months ago and managed to lead a Severe 4a.
James Williamson - Treasurer
I'm a 2nd year Electronic Engineering student. I started climbing when I came to University and am very glad I did! I currently favour sport, have lead up to 6a and my goal is to red point 7a by the end of this year.
Alfie Simmons - Social Secretary
Nick Warren - Trips Officer
I'm in my 5th year in the club and here at Surrey, currently studying for an MSc in Water & Environmental Engineering. I started climbing in my first year and since then have been in the committee twice and have climbed all over the UK and in Europe. Obviously I like trad most as it is the best type of climbing Wink (however still love to boulder, clip sport or play indoors). Think my favourite place in the UK is Tremadog and best in Europe was the Dolomites.
Charlie "Weeman" Cooper - Training Officer
Nathan "Iceman" Sharp - Equipment Officer
Matt "Novelty Tat" Wake - Web Geek
This is my second year within the club, but my fifth at the university having graduated once with a computing degree I decided I'd like to do it again with a computing masters. I started leading sport at the start of last year at Portland and haven't stopped, highest grade being 5c (French) at SPLAT. Trad has yet to excite me, it involves faff, bouldering is getting there, having been to the bouldering heaven that is Font.
Nicola John - Nic of the Club
