Its summer in the mountains here in Snowdonia, the rock is warm, the daylight hours long, the flowers in full bloom and its a beautiful time of year to come and learn some new skills and polish some old ones.
I run a range of navigation, hillwalking, mountaineering, scrambling and climbing courses & expeditions throughout the year to educate, motivate and inspire. I run most of the courses myself with one or two other instructors who are regular faces, highly qualified and good friends of mine.
I provide Mountain Leader Training and Assessment courses as an approved provider and course director for Mountain Training Cymru here in North Wales as well as mountain skills training & expeditions for individuals or groups on open courses or as private guiding.
My aim is to help you become self sufficient and self reliant in the mountains and on the crags in summer or winter and to help trainee leaders develop a career in the mountains.
I live in Snowdonia with my wife (Kate) and four children and run most of my courses here. I make my full time living in the mountains and spend most of my free time in them too, either climbing with friends or out with the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team or the Search Dogs. In addition I run trips to the Isle of Skye, the Alps, Norway, Spain and the Himalaya.

Hi Rob, Thanks again for a brilliant day - I'm still grinning from ear to ear. The photos on your blog look great, too. That odd white flower was indeed New Zealand Willowherb (score 1 point to me). Never seen it in flower before. As always, it was great to see you. All the best, Roddy Private Guiding - June 2014 - Read more testimonials here
