Courses

Throughout the year I run a range of navigation, hillwalking, mountaineering, scrambling and 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.
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 dates or as private guiding.

The year is roughly divided into summer and winter, with all of our summer program being based in Snowdonia and then with the winter seeing us run the majority of our courses in Scotland & Norway. The year is also interspersed with trips to The Alps and the big mountains of the world.

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. You can watch a video of the whole of our year here.

Be Inspired

“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!
Trail and its tens of thousands of readers trust him: you should too.”
