Since 2014 I have been a fully qualified Mountain Leader

Gaining this award meant proving extensive experience of mountain environments, and means that Mountain Training has judged me to be a competent and capable guide to non-winter walks and scrambles in the UK mountains. As with anyone who steps onto a mountain slope, the learning process is an ongoing one and my instinctive knowledge continues to expand with every trip I take or lead.

My experience in the hills ranges from the summer and winter peaks and ridges of Britain to higher summits in Chilean Patagonia, the New Zealand Alps, Iceland and the various alpine regions of Europe. If I sound like the kind of person you'd like to show you some of the best routes the UK has to offer - or even if you'd just like a little advice about kit or where to visit next - get in touch via the Contact page.
