Mountain Matt Picture
A passion for mountaineering and instructing
After a number of years devoted to exploring the British mountains I decided it was time to create a career around my passion, with over 125 mountain ascents and 100+ trad climbs I gained the Single pitch award (SPA) and Mountain Leader award (ML).

In summer I spend my free time climbing on the Sea Cliffs of Great Britain and in the Mountains of the Lake District and North Wales. I also make an annual journey to the French Alps where I get to test all my skills in alpinism on some of the biggest mountains in Europe.

Favourite Summer Climbs
Kirkus's route - Cwm Silyn  - Snowdon -VS4c
Main Wall Cyrn Las - Snowdon - HS4b
One step in the clouds - Tremadog - VS4c
Brant VS4c - Llanberis Pass
Blue Sky  - VS 4c - Pembroke

Winter is a special time of year for me where your judgment and ability is really pushed to the limit. I climb in Scotland, North Wales and Italian Alps.

In May 2015 I led an expedition to Morocco and summited Toubkal 4167m. I have travelled around the world including the Middle East, Asia and North America and next year I will be starting my training to become a Mountaineering Instructor.

I am a contributor to Summit magazine (The magazine of the British Mountaineering Council)  and brand ambassador for Sherpa adventure gear.
