From climbing technical routes in the greater ranges of Alaska, Peru, Patagonia and the Himalayas, to mixed winter climbing on Ben Nevis, I’m happy in all aspects of mountaineering. Whether introducing new comers to the mountains or climbing in far off lands with long standing clients, enthusiasm and energy are always running themes.

Skiing has also taken me to various places of the world. Whether it’s a personal expedition ski touring in British Colombia or skiing with clients throughout the Alpine regions of Europe. Exploration is an ongoing theme.

The continuous search for interesting and new places to go rock climbing has seen me travelling far and wide. From the remote cliffs of the Outer Hebrides, to the sun kissed granite at lands end. In the Wadi Rum, Jordan, I have made first ascents of rock climbs. Though some of the best rock climbing I have done recently has been in the Lofoten islands of Norway.

I am a British Mountain Guide (IFMGA) and hold the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate.
