Rich’s year is split between North Wales and the West Coast of Scotland, spending the majority of the year working in North Wales, where he calls home. His work is broad and varied but is always centered around the mountain/climbing environment. In addition to UK work he runs overseas expeditions which are primarily trekking trips to locations less traveled.
