Private Guiding

We often work with individuals or small groups to deliver courses or adventures anywhere on the planet. Different people have different starting points in their outdoor journey, so don’t feel constrained by our standard list of courses. It’s also great to develop a relationship with us over time and as your skills and ambitions grow we can suggest adventures suitable to those ambitions.

From bespoke introductory navigation courses to nailing that climb or boulder problem or training for a high altitude overseas expedition, we can work with you to generate a plan that suits.

Just contact the office and we will arrange something to suit your diary

Popular options in the UK are:
Gritstone classics – a couple of days on the best climbing routes the Peak District has to offer.
Scrambling weeks – Your own instructor to take you at your own pace around the amazing scrambles of Snowdonia.
Expedition training – A couple of days of walking to prepare you for your overseas adventures with lectures on altitude and acclimatisation, health whilst travelling, nutrition and hydration and what equipment and clothing to take.
Performance coaching – For those who want to upskill themselves or gain an instructor qualification whilst having fun on the rock or hills.
Winter mountaineering – From first steps on the slippy stuff to going vertical.

After an initial chat we will generate a bespoke plan for you or your group. If applicable we will also generate a training plan covering both the physical (including health and nutritional) and mental aspects of your chosen endeavour. If your ambitions include leading others, we will, where possible include instructional / guiding opportunities with real clients in these plans so that you get the very best experience possible.

With such a wealth of experience in both training and assessing for NGB awards, we are often asked to run refresher days in preparation for a NGB award assessment, more details can be found here.
