Welcome to the online home of Expeditionguide.com and thanks for visiting! Throughout the year I run a range of navigation, scrambling and rock climbing courses & expeditions to educate, motivate and inspire. I run most of the courses myself, assisted by my good friend Huw who is also an MIC with stacks of experience, enthusiasm and is a super nice guy.
“Rob is the definition of the calm professional in an environment that is anything but. He is a walking encyclopaedia of the mountains, and the techniques used to master them for the furthering of your own life story. And he inspires trust by being the safe pair of hands from which you can learn how to make yours steady in the most beautiful and dramatic places in the world – not least North Wales!”
Simon Ingram, Editor – Trail Magazine
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.
Our summer program is primarily based in the mountains of Snowdonia whilst in winter we run the majority of our courses in Scotland, Norway and The Alps and the courses on offer include Scottish Winter Skills, Winter Mountaineering & Climbing, Avalanche Avoidance, Snowshoe Trips and Ski Touring in the UK.
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 hope you enjoy browsing the site, it details our full range of trips and courses as you would expect but hopefully there are some extras that will inspire you to get out and enjoy the mountains!
I look forward to meeting you in the hills. Rob Johnson
