This site gathers the many strands with which I weave a working life.

Much of this is about helping others discover the exhilaration of being immersed in wild or steep landscapes.  Whether walking, running, scrambling, climbing, skiing or mountaineering it is all described under guiding.

In parallel, I work as a writer and offer copywriting, proofreading and editing services. For more on this see words.

Books is an online shop where you can buy Rock Climbing – the best-selling skills and techniques manual, written by me with help from a gazillion friends, published by Mountain Training.

The planet pages are for anyone feeling overwhelmed by the climate crisis and state of our environment. How can we pursue our climbing or mountain dreams guilt-free and with less impact?
