About

I work within the mountaineering department – it’s ace, I get to meet lots of fun, motivated people who enjoy doing the same things. The breadth of work is really appealing too; from Mountain Leader courses to Scottish winter, and sunny rock climbing in Wales.

I'm really wimpy with cold water, so you'll never see me in a kayak!

Qualifications

  • Mountaineering Instructor Certificate

Achievements

A few adventures which stand out in my memory are climbing Jebel Misht in Oman (being Brits, we packed belay jackets rather than sunscreen in the desert), traversing the Cuillin Ridge on a bluebird day,  and eventually summoning the courage to ski the San Joaquin couloir in Colorado.

Ambitions

I’d like to spend more time in Scotland, particularly the North West Highlands. They’re stunning, quiet, and have loads of summer and winter climbs I’d like to do, as well as some great ski lines.
