Growing up enjoying the Peak District on my doorstep, I was introduced properly to the wonderful world of climbing at 15. I quickly decided this was the path I wanted to take and gripped hold of it with both hands! I soon began winter climbing in Scotland and travelling with my passion: first around the UK, before the Alps and the Americas, making 1st ascents in Patagonia and Peru. Living in Chamonix I discovered just how much I loved skiing too and have now ski mountaineered extensively throughout the Alps and Canada. I've spent the winter guiding throughout the Highlands of Scotland, particularly exploring the incredible NW. Now having completed my training and assessments in the UK I'm just heading in to my first summer working as an Aspirant IFMGA Mountain Guide in the Alps. Very exciting times! Hopefully see you on the hill.
