Ian Fenton is an inspirational Mountaineering Instructor and a first class climbing coach. He has the rare combination of extensive experience still combined with youthful enthusiasm. He is a tremendous ambassador for the sports of climbing and mountaineering. He is passionate about his own enjoyment of climbing, and gifted in his ability to inspire and enthuse others. Furthermore, I have been lucky enough to sit on the BMC Training and Youth Committee for the years that Ian served as the chair. he was superb in this role, and in my mind, this is yet another set of skills and experience to mark Ian out as a cut above the norm. It has been a pleasure to work and climb with Ian over many years, and I hope that many others get to benefit from the opportunity to do the same.
