COURSE FORMAT

We meet either in London or at the location that has been planned for the course. We will discuss what works best during the booking process. more details about travel and accommodation can be found below.

Once we get together at the climbing location, it will be time to get kitted out and have a chat about the course and plans to fit in with you, your experience and expectations, the weather, and location. The timings of each day on the course are very much dependent on us getting the most out of the trip. They are always fun-packed but time to head back to the accommodation for well-earned food and rest each evening.

All courses are privately guided with a maximum of two clients to one instructor.

Accommodation can be arranged for Snowdonia courses. It would be in a simple bunkhouse at £20 per night and I can book this upon request.

This is something we can discuss at the point of booking. It is important that we respect the environment so travelling from the same area in convoy doesn’t make great sense, although sometimes this cannot be avoided. If you will be travelling from London it is possible to arrange shared transport in my car to help save the environment and your money. Whatever the case, let’s chat and make sure it works best for all.
