Mountain Guide

For such a small island, Britain has an amazing variety of upland regions. The movement of tectonic plates, volcanic actions and sedimentary forces has created a variety of mountain and rock formations to be explored and enjoyed at your leisure.

My life in the mountains started at an early age, by the time that I was 13 years of age I was fortunate to have climbed some of our bigger peaks; at 16 years I had progressed to leading rock climbs and at 20 years of age I had become a serious alpinist and rock climber. Climbing with some of the UK's leading alpinists I managed to have several successful seasons in the alps bagging many big North Faces.

I have continued to climb at a reasonable standard and enjoy our high mountain regions throughout the UK.

As long as you are reasonably fit you can ‘ top out' on our big three in Scotland, England and Wales. Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, either as a mini tour or as one-offs.

There are so many, whatever time of the year. 14 peaks over 3,000 ft in North Wales, the beautiful mountains and fells of the English Lake District and 248 Scottish Munros - all easy to reach.

If you would like to experience British Rock you're in for a real treat. Whether you're an absolute beginner or have some experience in vertical adventures, the scope is enormous. Derbyshire Gritsone, Yorkshire Limestone, Cornish Granite or the volcanic crags of the mountains the list is absolutely endless!
