The week on the Matterhorn trip was amazing, although very intense so i think i have only just got back to normal now! Myself and David climbed with Tim for most of the week and being relative novices he definitely had his work cut out for him, but he was extremely patient, clear with instructions and took the time to teach us alot during the course of the week. Overall despite the hard work and blisters i had an incredible and very enjoyable week

A quick email to say thank you so much for your guidance on the Cuillin ridge last week. My dad and I had a fantastic time. We're delighted to have 'knocked off' the In Pin and, in all, we had one of the best week's climbing we've ever had

Many thanks for a really memorable week. You planned & guided great routes & peaks at exactly the right level for a desk-bound aspirant alpinist.
You showed great patience with my rusty alpinism and as a valued bonus were great company to be with. We had most interesting conversations ranging from Radio 4, Swiss wine, financial engineering through to the merits of assorted late night night-haunts. All highly recommended and am looking forward for some more next year where I will be older but probably neither wiser nor fitter

Thank you for a great day out rock climbing. I could never have imagined climbing in such fantastic surroundings. Catrin had such a good time, I think you struck a perfect balance of challenge and fun. The photos of her atop Aiguillette dAgentiere have astounded her friends and teachers at school. I still cant actually believe that you managed to get me to climb up there too!The climbing, the scenery and the marmots will make it a day we will remember for a long time.

A thoroughly enjoyable course, so much so I'd do it all again!

Alpine Summer

Lofoten Granite - Climbing in Arctic Norway

Noway's Lofoten Islands are magical. Lying high in the Arctic circle you can climb here under the midnight sun on magnificent granite. There is something for all tastes here; long alpine ridges (with snow early season) or steep granite crags literally minutes from the road.
