    About the Guide

     
     

    I love the mountains and the mountain culture. After nearly 15 years of climbing, trekking and snow boarding all over the world. I can honestly say I am at home in the mountains.

    In 2012, I set up a company to share this passion with others. We offer unique trips to amazing locations and are the only British company to offer trips such as our "Stubai7Summits" or "Polish Scrambling week".
