Professional Coaching, Guiding & Tuition, Tailored to You
Just starting out climbing, or have 40+ years of experience?!
Fancy guided classic trad climbs, working towards instructor qualifications, or want to push your grade?
I work with beginners through to experts, from those that seek the physical challenge or really want to develop their skills and performance, to those who enjoy time with others and the therapeutic aspect of the outdoors. Climbing is a fantastic, varied activity in so many ways, and I am passionate about sharing that joy with others.

Coaching is all about you - your movement skills, headgame, confidence, and tactics.

Coaching takes place either indoors, or outdoors on trad, sport or bouldering.
Rock Climbing Tuition
Tuition is all about making you more of an independent rock climber, and helping you develop practical skills for safe and slick trad or sport climbing.
Arrange private teaching days to develop your rock climbing skills.
