I've loved the outdoors since I was a child, enjoying walks with my parents along the coasts and over the moorlands of Devon and Cornwall. Once I left for University I discovered a love for climbing as well. This has taken me all over the UK and Europe.
In 2010 I decided I could no longer face spending the rest of my life in an office despite enjoying the work and signed up to the Mountain Leader Award. This and my personal experiences with friends, at work, and at the university club enabled me to get onto the Centre Assistant Scheme at Plas Y Brenin where I worked through the other awards and skills required to become a full time instructor.
I enjoy helping others safely discover the outdoors and wild places for themselves.
Ollie is a great person to be out on the hill with; measured, confident and reassuringly calm. He is always fun to climb with, regardless of the season, route or style, and his enthusiasm for the sport of mountaineering shines through when he is teaching others the skills to get out and about in the mountains.I always feel confident that Ollie will make safe and sensible decisions, regardless of what might be going on around him in terms of group or weather.His demeanor soothes everyone with him, even in potentially stressful situations.
