My love of climbing has seen me gain extensive experience over three decades, including solo winter expeditions, first ascents of rock and ice routes and developing new bouldering venues. If there’s a summit, climb or new grade that inspires you I’ll match your enthusiasm and do everything I can to make it happen.
During 18 years of coaching I've delivered training to NICAS, the Glenmore Lodge team, the British Mountain Guides and many other professional organisations. I'm a provider of the UK's Coaching Awards and deliver nationally recognised CPD for coaches. I've also published skills articles for UKClimbing and the Professional Mountaineer magazine.
Based in the Lake District, I work throughout the UK and consult as a Technical Advisor in the public and private sector.
I have full public liability insurance, hold the highest UK-specific mountaineering qualification – the M.I.C, and I’m a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors and the Mountain Training Association.
