The People
Behind Adelong

Charlie Chambers

Charlie started Adelong Outdoor Education in 2009. She is a professional youth worker with a BA (hons) degree. Charlie has worked in the outdoors for over 20 years and has a passion for adventure.

Charlie loves nothing more than climbing big mountain routes or hanging out above the sea on adventurous trad climbs . . . From the towering multi-pitch sea cliffs of Lofoten, Norway, to big mountain routes in Switzerland and crack climbing in Indian Creek in Utah along with one of her favourite places, Bosigran in Cornwall.

Charlie is an MCI (mountaineering and climbing instructor) and loves supporting other people to become more independent in the mountains and on the rock and to enjoy time in the great outdoors with friends and family.

My most memorable recent adventure has got to be summiting Ama Dablam in the Himalayas as part of a self-guided team in 2022. A big adventure which taught me so much!

Charlie’s love for adventure led her and an all-female team to break the world record for the ‘fastest descent of the longest river in the British Isles’ by open canoe.
