Courses and guided climbs are tailored to you, but here are some suggestions

Guided multipitch climbing - from your first steps in multipitch climbing, to ticking that classic climb. I guide up to E3 standard, and will show you the best the Lakes has to offer, either teaching you independent skills along the way, or just giving you a great day out climbing.

Outdoor climbing introductions - an introduction to outdoor climbing on single pitch or multi pitch crags

Learn to Lead - expert, focussed tuition in leading trad climbs will make a huge difference in your confidence, safety and rate of development. These courses will vary in length depending on your experience. Ideally a 1:2 ratio will allow me to be alongside the lead climber on a separate rope, ensuring quality gear placements and giving maximum support. 

Pushing your grade (trad or sport) - I am experienced in pushing my own climbing, dealing with fear, and coaching others through those boundaries and benchmark grades. Don't let anxiety or fear hold back your climbing. I'll share my route tactics, gear tips and experience, and love seeing others improve!
