Come and join me rock climbing, scrambling, navigating, learning new winter skill, climbing a winter climb, trekking in the Alps of Europe or getting some personal climbing coaching. My passion is the outdoors and coaching, instructing and teaching others in this environment in whatever aspect they want to develop. On top of the qualifications I have listed below I am also a Qualified Teacher having spent 8 years teaching Geography.
I hold the Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor (WMCI), the International Mountain Leader Award (IML) and the Development Coach Award. This allows me to take you into technical terrain in the UK summer and winter be it mountaineering or climbing as well as walking and the IML allows me to lead trekking routes in Europe.
In the process of getting this award I have completed my Rock Climbing Instructor (RCI), Summer and Winter Mountain Leader Award (ML) and my Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor Award (MCI). This equates to 40 days training, 32 days assessment and a minimum of around 350 days walking, scrambling and climbing. I am also a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI) and am the Development Officer for this organisation. Most importantly however, I truly love my job. Call it what you will but, teaching, instructing, coaching or guiding in the outdoors is brilliant. Every day is different as the weather changes, the routes vary and people's abilities, ages and expectations differ. Please feel free to get in contact with me so that we can discuss how I can help you fulfil your outdoor ambitions. In the unlikely event that I cannot be the one to help you, I will certainly put you in touch with someone who can.
