Quality instruction from a Mountaineering Professional


As a qualified Mountaineering Instructor and obsessive climber and mountaineer, I can offer you a variety of mountaineering activities. 

I hold the 'Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor' qualification, which is the highest qualification for instructing and guiding in Summer conditions in the UK. I also hold the 'Winter Mountain Leader' qualification. 

Based in the North of England, I provide a range of courses in climbing, scrambling and hill walking in the best mountain areas of the UK including Snowdonia, the Lake District, the Peak District and Scotland. 

All instruction is tailored to suit your ability, experience and goals, which means you will learn exactly what you want to learn during your time with me. I tailor all of my courses specifically to you, and no course is exactly the same.

I had a brilliant day walking the Snowdon Horseshoe with Mike. He was great company, very supportive and I never felt anxious at all, despite it being something I was really unsure if I would be capable of. I would recommend him wholeheartedly and hope to climb or scramble with him again one day.

'The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal. Always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking, and those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind and body.'
