blurr UK ambassador Dan Turner

blurr ambassador Dan Turner climbs like a boss. Fueled by seemingly endless motivation this UK crusher is constantly getting out there and getting it done.  He sends boulders like a teenage girl sends text messages: often.

We at blurr are happy to have Dan on the team, here's an excerpt from a recent interview Dan did with The Depot Climbing Center in Leeds with video:

How And When Did You Start Climbing?

I started around 14 when a few friends, Tim Patty, Sam Duff and Chris Freeman took me to the Penrith Climbing wall. I got obsessed quick. That wall was mad, it was such an amazing scene and for such a small wall its crazy to think it created some WADS; Jungle, Dave Jones, Freemans who have all either climbed Font8B or Sport 8c.

Which Crags In The Early Days?

My early days were spent at the Bowderstone and Reecastle. I kind of grew up on the Bowderstone, it’s such an amazing boulder to progress through the grades. There are endless pointless possibilities to keep you entertained and wanting more.

What Inspires You? Where Does Your Motivation Come From?

Big walk ins, big boulders and big lines. I think I am naturally very motivated, it scares me that one day I might not be motivated, that day will suck.
