I’m a climber based in beautiful Southern Snowdonia who has the simple aim of spending as much of life as I can enjoying climbing and the mountains in all their wondrous variety. As a Mountaineering Instructor sharing these experiences or better still passing on the skills for people to seek them out for themselves is what my business is all about.
We are naturally all individuals and everyone wants something slightly different from their day or course. To that end you’ll find little structure on my courses page, maybe just a couple of unique events. Whatever your aims and whenever you want to achieve them I’m confident that I can help. Please feel free to get in touch with any enquiry no matter how tentative. A browse through my blog is a good way of seeing what other people have got up to.
The mountain environment and activities I offer create great opportunities for training in team building, personal development and leadership. I’ve also run a number of successful sessions for school and college groups where the rich history of mountaineering endeavour has been used to highlight the ways and benefits of working together.
I hold the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC) and have considerable and diverse experience of leading groups in the mountains, from rock climbing in Norway to crossing high passes in the Himalaya. In the winter of 1999 I was part of an expedition that made a West-East and back crossing of the Arctic island of Spitzbergan. The following year I joined another small expedition that forced a new crossing of the Darwin Range, Patagonia. In 2008 I lead a four man team that established notable new routes in a remote area of South West Greenland. Despite the travel climbing in Wales is still my big passion although I temper this with a touch of mountain biking and the occasional foray into competitive fell running.
