About Me

Having climbed for over 30 years a good friend of mine said "why don't you put some of that knowledge and skills to good use". 

After living in Scotland for 7 years, climbing summer and winter, around the UK and abroad. I cannot think of a better thing to do than spending my time with others climbing indoors and outdoors. Some of my best memories and times where spent climbing (apart from the birth of my 2 children) and if I can share this with others well "Fantastic".

I work as a freelance instructor at various indoor climbing centre's and outdoor activity centre's. Working with children and adults alike I enjoy teaching all ages. 

A member of the Mountain Training Association, I hold the MLs, SPA and CWLA awards, am First Aid trained and fully insured through the Mountain Training Association.

About Learn the Ropes

Learn the Ropes provides adventure instruction & tuition, indoors and out. Living just outside the Lake District we have some amazing climbing and walking on our door step but we do get around, from Cornwall to Scotland and anywhere in between.

As one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, climbing has it all; a great way to get fit, tone your body and lose weight. Alternatively we offer full guided walks at various locations in the Lake District.

Whether you are an individual or a group wanting to experience the great outdoors, conquer a mountain or learn to climb, we will have something for you and our sessions can be tailored to your needs, from a short valley walk to full lead climbing.
