I also offer 1:1 / 1:2 guiding, climbing movement skills, introduction to outdoor climbing, learning to lead, intro to sport climbing, psychological training for climbing, intro to multi pitch climbing and problem solving/improvised rescue training.

Rob is a keen active climber and coach, with decades of experience in the soft skills of personal development aswell as hard technical skills. His passion for the sport shows in his pursuit of his own climbing improvement and in his ability to share it with others. Rob has attended my 'Coaching Climbing Movement' AMI workshop twice (two years apart) such is his thirst for more knowledge of all things coaching related. He'll be a great advocate and ambassador of the new MT Coaching Awards. John Kettle
