I have been a keen mountaineer since my youth and have held authorisation by the scout association to take scouts climbing and hill walking for many years. Some time ago the scout association changed their rules. As a result of this I decided to get some formal qualifications (mainly to prove to myself I was as competent as I thought I was).
now have gained my mountain leaders award (ML), gaining my winter ML in
2007, I also hold a single pitch climbing award (SPA). I am a member of
the BMC, MLTA and the Eagle ski club.
