Professional Coaching, Guiding & Instruction, Tailored to You
Whether you're just starting out, or have lots of experience, I cater coaching and tuition specifically to you.
I work with a whole variety of people, 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, to those who want to tackle summits and tick-lists. Climbing and mountaineering are fantastic activities in so many ways, and I am passionate about sharing that joy with others.

She has a comprehensive knowledge of routes, and is excellent at choosing routes to give you a rewarding day, be that trad or sport, hard or easy. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone."
