I am preparing for an MIA (Mountain Instructors Award) assessment and am looking to take people, preferably in pairs out rock climbing. I am keen to hear from anyone who feels they would benefit from some tuition in multi-pitch climbing and/ or learning to lead climb.

This tuition would be free of charge because as an MIA trainee I do not, as yet, hold the Mountain Instructor Award which is the recognised qualification for the instruction of scrambling and multi-pitch rock climbing in the UK. The training course for an award does not constitute a qualification. I am confident I can offer a high level of development and tuition as I have worked in the mountain environment for a number of years but the high quality of an MIA that already holds the award should be considered when replying as this will very much be a learning experience for myself too.

I am based in The Lake District and am available from April 2012. I can offer this in The Lakes or on more specific dates in North Wales.

Please email me with any interest or queries at woolleymonkeys@hotmail.com.

I could be about in North Wales on those dates in early April. From my profile you will see that I've done a fair bit of climbing before, but if you want to have a go at teaching some self rescue in combination with going out and doing some climbing I'd be keen.
