UK Summer Mountain

From £70 per person per day

The UK hills and mountains are very special compared to many other areas of the World. You can both easily and legally access very wild and remote terrain, away from other people and marked paths. In order to get into these areas (and more importantly out again!) the ability to navigate is essential. I will show you techniques and give you the confidence to walk away into the wilds!

I am also a provider of the National Navigation Award Scheme and can provide both Bronze and Silver award training and assessment.

NNAS Silver Navigation Weekends
£120 per person

Days from £120 per day. Maximum ratio 1:12

I offer guided walking around the UK. Whether you have a particular peak in mind and wish to have an experienced hand along to show you the way or just wish to get out on the hills without the pressure of choosing a suitable objective, I can help you scale the mountains of your dreams...

Scrambling – becoming a mountaineer...

I can offer two levels of scrambling; courses for beginners and a more advanced course.

£150 per person for two days. Maximum ratio 1:6

The beginner’s course offers you the chance to use your hands to assist you in climbing up mountains. You will tackle some of the classic grade one scrambles such as the North ridge of Tryfan, Bristly ridge on Glyder Fach and Crib Goch in the Snowdon Massif. These will be without the use of ropes.

£150 per person for two days. 1:2 ratio

On the advanced course the ante is upped and you don harnesses, helmets and ropes to look at techniques and methods to safe guard and assist progress on harder scrambles up to grade three. These may include Clogwyn y Persons arete and Cniefion arête.

Prerequisites: Some previous simple scrambling experience
