‘Guiding’ is a catch-all to describe the many ways I share days with people in the mountains and on the crags.
Pure guiding is all about the experience or the ascent. It’s a great way to simply enjoy the magic of being up high, scrambling an airy ridge, doing your first climb or tackling something harder.
Instructional and coaching days involve more learning, whether that be ropework or footwork, with clear aims and objectives in mind.
Most days are a blend. All days are precious. Whatever the design, I’ll always strive to make them fun, relevant and memorable.
