MIC, Level 4 Inland

Career Highlights

Qualifying as an MIC and gaining a position to work with my mates at Glenmore Lodge. Big walls in Yosemite including El Cap, Half Dome & Moonlight Buttress in Zion. Great Ice climbs such as Weeping Wall & Polar Circus in Canada. Big rivers in the Alps & Nepal. Classic mountaineering experiences such as Everest, Ama Dablam & Lubje in Nepal. All of these have been highlights.

Favourite Destination

Hard to pick just one. Nepal is up there as is Zion (USA), Scottish NW rock, Cogne ice (Italy).

Favourite Piece of Kit

A small rucksack, as you just fill a big one!

3 Things I Always Pack

First Aid Kit, iPhone, lightweight head torch.

What Inspires You

Different places both in the UK and abroad. I love hearing about other peoples’ routes/trips. It is infectious being here at the Lodge.

What’s next on your bucket list?

Always changing but am planning to spend several months on a road trip in the USA doing classic rock & bike routes. Also planning to see the 100th Tour de France this year.
