I have been climbing in different parts of the UK and Europe for the past 20 years. I hold the Rock Climbing Instructor's Award and the Mountain Leader Award. I am now working towards the Mountaineering Instructor Award (MIA) and want to spend lots of days climbing outside over the spring and summer.

Does anybody want to go for some days of rock climbing with me in Yorkshire, the Peak District or North Wales? The days when I will be free are: 

  • Wed 17/4/19 (Peak District or Yorkshire)
  • Thu 2/5/19 (Peak District, Yorkshire or North Wales)
  • Fri 3/5/19 (Peak District, Yorkshire or North Wales)
  • Sun 12/5/19 (North Wales)
  • Mon 13/5/19 (North Wales)
  • Thu 16/5/19 (Peak District or Yorkshire).

Activities could include:

  • single pitch climbing
  • multi-pitch climbing
  • placing gear
  • setting up bottom ropes and top ropes
  • leading trad or sport routes
  • climbing on road-side crags, sea cliffs or mountain crags.

As an MIA trainee I do not, as yet, hold the Mountaineering Instructor Award which is the recognised qualification for the instruction of scrambling and multi-pitch rock climbing in the UK. I've undergone the training course, but training for an award does not constitute a qualification. The term aspirant should not be used as a level of competency for multi-pitch climbing has not been assessed. 

I do not hold insurance that allows me to receive payment or benefits in kind for instruction, but as a volunteer with membership of a mountaineering council of the UK or Eire I am insured for third party liability. These topics will need to be discussed in detail and agreed before an activity is conducted. 

If you're interested in doing any of the above activities, please send me a message.
