Inspired by tales of adventure and faraway lands as a child, Sofia began her climbing journey in an inner city bouldering gym in London. She has since climbed all over the world, from sea cliffs in Thailand to rocky spires in Chamonix. As a city dweller and outdoor enthusiast - two types that aren't often displayed together - Sofia feels passionately about bridging the gap between worlds, and especially increasing representation of ESEA in sports/adventure.
Tommy has been climbing for 16 years and is as passionate about it now as was when he started. Fitting it in all around his work in performing arts and sometimes even within it. He started with bouldering but now particularly enjoying outdoor lead climbing.

Due East is a hiking group aiming to create a safe space for people of East and Southeast Asian heritage to reclaim, reconnect and experience the outdoors through group walks, outdoor activities and trips.
As the name suggests, this is a safe space for people of East & Southeast Asian heritage who are comfortable in a space that centres on the experiences of ESEA people. We are not a political organisation. We just like walking.
