Guy lives with his family in Aberdeen, Scotland, where he works as a low carbon project manager.  He has put up new rock and winter climbs in regions as diverse as Africa, the Middle East, the Alps, Peru, Norway and the Greater Himalaya.  However, it is for his domestic winter exploits he is rightly best known, having for many years been active at the forefront of Scottish winter climbing. 

Guy has made long-awaited second ascents of most of the hardest winter test-pieces from the 1980’s and 1990’s and more recently has pioneered many of his own first ascents across Scotland up to grade X. 

He specialises in creating long and sustained mixed routes, often in very remote locations, and always climbed from the ground up.  This committing and adventurous approach encapsulates the very essence of hard Scottish winter climbing.

Scarpa Kalipe

They are not the most technical approach shoe on the market, and their shallow tread could prove a worry on steep grass, but the Kalipe's combination of affordable price, and comfy and forgiving fit, makes them an easy approach shoe to get along with, says Dan Bailey.
