Since moving to Glen Coe for the winter of 2012/13 to gain QMD's for MLW Assessment, I decided I wanted to stay... I found myself Full Time Employment at The Ice Factor.
I have been working solidly on Rock Climbing and Indoor Ice Climbing since February2013.and also guiding (Summer/Winter) in The Highlands ,covering Private Guiding,leading 3 Peaks Challengers and Winter Skills Courses(Including night navigation and wild/winter camping),and have also been trained in Alpine Ropework(M.Pescod), and I am registered as a Hill and Mountain Skills Tutor.
I am also the Founder of The Real 3 Peaks Challenge:Cleanse & Conserve (The simultaneous cleaning of Ben Nevis,Scafell Pike and Snowdon on the same day).
I have left my employment to become available for freelance work,as I feel this is where I need to go next. Please check out my Facebook page "Rich Mountain Experiences" and my website www.richmountainexperiences.co.uk to get an idea of what I can offer.
