Here is an outline of my prices for guiding or instructing in 2024. Get in touch for more info and a quote. 

Ratios and group size

You can come by yourself or as a group. The ideal ratio will depend on the activity, time of year, venue and what you’re hoping to get out of the day.

For walking and easy scrambling the maximum group size is normally 6 – 8 and for roped scrambling or winter skills it’s normally 4, but it’s best to outline what you have in mind and I can suggest the optimum ratio.

Climbing takes place with individuals (1:1 ratio) or pairs (1:2 ratio), this way you maximise the climbing time. For learning specific techniques in a more controlled setting groups of up to four people works well (1:4 ratio).

For additional people joining add £25 per person, up to maximum 4 people. For larger groups please get in touch for a quote.

These prices are for the guiding fee only. Prices do not include travel, insurance, accommodation, food & drink, mountain boots, rucksack, outdoor clothing or ice axe and crampon hire.

Delving into the fine detail of climbing is the essence of coaching. It often takes place in shorter, regular sessions. You can read more about it here

1:1 = £85 per two hour session

These sessions often take place in a climbing wall – the cost of entry is not included in these prices.
