I have been actively climbing for over 20 years and have remained current throughout. I enjoy climbing in all its forms from bouldering through to mountaineering and altitude work and have put up over 60 first ascents in the UK. I love coaching movement and seeing progression but equally enjoy seeing people excited whilst being "out there" on a big route. I currently provide Mountain Leader, Climbing Wall Instructor, Climbing Wall Development Instructor, Rock Climbing Instructor, Lowland Leader, Hill/Mountain Skills, Hill and Moorland Leader and the Expedition Module for Mountain Training. I offer Technical Advice for Climbing and Coasteering Activities, Route setting and staff training as well as traditional classic guiding and expedition work.
I am available for Activities, Training or Consultancy for Climbing , Walking, Surfing, Kayaking or Coasteering . Please contact me with any details of your requirements for training, advice or courses.
I can provide all of Mountain Training England's awards as well as running Winter Skills courses and Spanish climbing trips. I am also happy to provide any refresher training for any of these awards.

I first got into climbing at an early age when my Uncle took me on forays to Baggy Point and Portland. Then after a few other encounters with great people on fantastic routes got heavily into it. I have climbed and mountaineered all over the world ever since. I have a passion for all areas of climbing from bouldering to altitude trekking and love the solitude and camaraderie of the Mountains.
I am a provider for Mountain Training and run the Rock Climbing Instructor award (RCI), Climbing Wall Instructor award (CWI), Climbing Wall Development Instructor (CWDI), Rock Climbing Development Instructor, Hill/Mountain skills, Lowland Leader, Hill and Moorland Leader, Mountain Leader courses and the Coaching Scemes, I also work for the BMC and provide FUNdamental courses, and MIAS and run level one and two Mountain Biking courses. I am also a keen surfer, snowboarder and photographer. I run many courses for many activities and as well as my climbing work I run a coasteering business.
