I have known David Whiteley for over twelve years as a climbing partner and for eight years in a professional capacity. I’ve shared many climbs around England, Wales and Scotland on multi-pitch climbs up to E1 5c and have found Dave to be a reliable partner, able to make sound judgements in all types of conditions and situations. As an instructor David creates a very good rappor with students regardless of their age or experience. I've observed Dave coaching climbing to various levels of student of all ages making major advances in their climbing movement. He always demonstrates excellent judgement, ensuring clients have an enjoyable and productive experience.
I have known Dave in a professional capacity for over 12 years and would have the utmost confidence in his abilities as a mountaineering instructor. I worked with Dave in many settings from Climbing walls, single pitch crags, Mountain walking in both summer and winter, multi pitch climbing & scrambling. I have also been with him leading "informal" students on winter climbs. Dave always behave in a professional and competent manner and would see MIC as an excellent development step for him to take, I believe he will make a very good MIC in the future. He has also ensured he is fully aware of the work and commitment he needs to make to achieve this outcome. I personally wish him all the best in this next stage in his career.
