Planning a mountaineering adventure to the Alps or some other exotic mountain destination? Then head out to the United Kingdom first for some Alpine training across multiple locations!

From Scotland’s Cairngorms to the lovely English Lake District and stunning Snowdonia in Wales, we can head out to any of these spectacular locations to build up your skill set and make some excellent ascents.

Each of these three spots is a veritable playground for climbing and we’re sure to have a blast wherever we go.

Depending on your skills, how long you have to spend climbing and your preferences, we will tailor the perfect itinerary that best prepares you for your next trip.

These are just a few of the things we’ll try to go over during our time together:

  • General rope maintenance, taking rope coils and rope work

  • Body belays, selecting and using direct belays

  • Rock protection

  • Route finding and navigation

  • Descending and abseiling

  • How to prusik

  • Crevasse rescue training

  • Ice axe and crampon techniques (only available during the winter)

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an informative and intense 1+ day Alpine training experience in Scotland’s Cairngorms, England’s Lake District or Snowdonia in Wales!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 4-day scrambling traverse of Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye!

What people are saying about Paul



Paul is the man! Great guide.



Had a brilliant time kids loved it Paul was excellent will be definitely booking again



Had a great day out with my instructor Paul who was very helpful in introducing me to trad climbing and getting me to be very comfortable on the rocks. We did six 1-pitch climbs and one multi-pitch climb while enjoying the phenomenal view of Langdale amongst many Herdwick sheeps. Would have extended the experience if I had more time and definitely would do it again.



Kirsty was our guide and she did a wonderful job, very knowledgeable and very personable. She was amazing. Highly recommend her to anyone who wants a great guide.



Despite terrible mountain conditions our guide did his best to make sure we got the most out of our trip. His special skill is keeping group moral
