Mountaineering Articles

I am a full time professional Mountaineering Instructor based in Snowdonia. I hold the highest instructional qualification in the UK for all aspects of summer and winter climbing and mountaineering. I am also a member of the Llanberis Mountain Rescue team covering Snowdon. I have been climbing and mountaineering for more than 20 years around the world.

I am a regular contributor to various magazines in the outdoor press including having a monthly "ask the expert" column in Trail Magazine and for the Simply Hike website. I have also written articles and/or provided features for TGO, Adventure Travel Magazine, BMC Summit Magazine, The Progessional Mountaineer, Mountain Rescue Magazine as well as case studies for various instructional and educational books.

I am happy to provide ideas for articles or work to a set brief.
