Climbing guiding 

I provide climbing guiding for people of any level of ability. I’ll ensure what we do is pitched at the right level for you.  The guiding I provide will involve training as well as coaching of your existing skill set. You’ll  have fun, gain competency and build confidence.

Every person and objective on a given day is unique, but some examples of guided trips are: 

  • Sea-cliff climbing at Gogarth or Pembroke
  • Slab climbing in the Llanberis slate quarries or Tremadog
  • Scrambling in mountains of Snowdonia
  • Sea stacks and cliffs of NW Scotland
  • Isle of Skye rock climbing and Cuillin Ridge scrambling 
  • Mixed climbing in the Northern Cairngorms
  • Snow and ice climbing on Ben Nevis

As a climber tuned in to the conditions and with knowledge of the best venues, I can guarantee to make the most of your time. Whether you’re looking for a single day, long weekend or a week trip I’m keen to hear about your ideas and objectives; dont hesitate to get in touch.

Training and Coaching 

Acquiring new skills, breaking performance barriers  and gaining independence are outcomes realised when we engage in a methodical learning process.

I provide training and coaching that puts you and your needs at the centre. We’ll test out theories,  re-mould habits and pick up new ones. You should be prepared to be challenged, to think hard and have a laugh along the way.

Some example objectives would be: 

  • Transition your climbing; indoor – rock, sport – traditional, single – multi pitch
  • Overcome a grade barrier 
  • Learn to use the climbing wall as a training tool
  • Learn to lead climb 
  • Learn to scramble
  • Manage a fear of falling
  • Access serious places (eg sea cliffs, mountain crags)
  • Gain problem solving and emergency rope skills (eg escaping, ascend a rope)
  • Gain winter mountain skills (eg avalanche awareness)
  • Learn to climb harder in the winter

I work with big spectrum of clients, from total beginners to seasoned performers.  If one of these examples  chimes with you or you’re after something else you think I can help with, please get in touch.
