I am currently mid-way through the British Mountain Guide training scheme. Having completed the British Rock test, I am qualified to offer guiding and instruction here in the UK. The lines between guiding and instruction are often blurred, with clients learning along the way on guided climbs, and getting lots of good climbing in on instructional courses. All guiding and instruction takes place on a one-to-one or one-to-two ratio.

Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Guiding

Rock climbing

Whether you would like to tick those classics off your wish list, get around to climbing life-long goals, or want to sample outdoor rock climbing for the first time, I offer guided rock climbing throughout the UK. From the sea cliffs of North Wales through to the high mountain crags of Scotland, we are lucky to have easy access to world class rock across Britain.

Scrambling 

The mountains of North Wales, The Lake District, and particularly the Cuillin of Skye, are full of amazing scrambles. Whether you want to enjoy great journeys through the mountains, or use them as a stepping stone towards alpine adventures, I will fit a course to your needs.

Instruction

Learn to climb outside

Whatever your level of experience, I offer instruction and coaching in the skills needed to progress to climb independently on outdoor crags. Whether you are a first timer, want to learn how to lead, or want to progress to climb on bigger, more serious cliffs, courses can be shaped to fit your needs.

Self rescue for climbers

Everything that you need to know for when things go wrong! I deliver tailored courses teaching the skills needed to deal with the unexpected, including escaping the system, hauling an injured climbing partner, ascending ropes, and dealing with stuck abseil ropes.
