I live in mid-Cornwall, working as a fully qualified professional Mountaineering Instructor & rock-climbing guide.
Almost 30 yrs have gone by since I first fell in love with rock-climbing & mountaineering as a scout.
Nowadays I spend much of my time guiding on spectacular Cornish cliffs & teaching skills to both novice climbers & aspirant instructors.
I prefer to climb VS-HVS sea cliff routes in big comfortable boots & I just love drinking tea while taking in Cornwalls majestic coastal views.


Best Climbing Experience
Freeing Eyefull Tower at the Cheesewring Quarry high up on Bodmin Moor, only 6 mounths after I started rock-climbing.

Interests Outside Climbing
I'm an active member of Cornwall Search & Rescue Team and currently in the process of training a Chocolate Labrador called "Ziva" as an air scenting search dog.
Other than climbing and mountaineering I also enjoy restoring old classic vehicles and Land Rovers.
During the winter months I love to head for the snow and ice.
