    About the Guide


    Since I was a child I have enjoyed and practiced mountain activities, like mountaineering, climbing and hiking. Today I hold a Mountain Instructor Certificate (MIC), the highest instructional qualification in the UK for mountain guides. Also, I am a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI), an organisation that represents professional mountaineers within the UK.

    I am passionate about climbing, whether it's delivering scrambling or climbing courses or leading a day out. We have so many amazing venues and routes to choose from in North Wales!

    I live in the heart of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, the largest national park in Wales. My home is close to amazing rock climbing venues, where I usually take my clients. Besides, I often deliver National Governing Body Awards, such as Winter and Summer Mountain Leader courses. Also, Single Pitch Award climbing courses. They all run under the UK’s Mountain Training Association.

    Please feel free to get in touch with me! You can tell me about your wishes and we can talk about the different options I offer. I will be really happy to be your guide!
