As a freelance guide I have no fixed calendar. In 2020 I will be based in the North Wales for most of time, but I am happy to travel to elsewhere in the UK (e.g the Lake District, Peak, Cornwall, Scotland, Ireland) if you would like to climb somewhere different.

From January to March 2021 I will be based in Scotland, guiding winter climbing and mountaineering.

Beyond that I will be working in the Alps as an Aspirant Guide, under the supervision of a qualified IFMGA Guide.

I only work with private clients, and everything I do is completely bespoke to suit your needs. If there is something that I don't normally offer that you would like to climb together then please get in touch.

I charge a flat day rate, which includes guiding and instruction, all safety equipment, and transport whilst working locally. This is based on guiding on a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio.

It does not include: my travel beyond North Wales (or Scotland in the winter), my overnight accommodation away from North Wales (or Scotland in the winter), your climbing equipment, your insurance.

Prices in 2020

Rock climbing in North Wales - £250

Rock climbing elsewhere in the UK - £275

Scottish Winter Climbing - £275

NB: Some particularly demanding and long routes (e.g. The Old Man of Hoy or the Cuillin Ridge Traverse) will require an additional supplement to these prices.
