You will need to pay a £50 deposit to secure your booking with the remaining amount payable no later than 4 weeks prior to the start of the course.


What's Included in the Price?

The price for the course is for the instuction and use of technical gear only. I will provide ropes, gear, helmets etc. when needed but you will need to make sure you have suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. I will provide you with a detailed kit list when you book your course.

Participation and Insurance

  Winter Walking in Snowdonia

Its important to remember that mountaineering activities involves certain risks. As a professional mountaineering instructor I will always aim to minimise the exposure to risk but I can never eliminate it.

The BMC (British Mountaineering Council) Participation Statement say that: " The BMC recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions. "


As a professional mountaineering instructor I hold public liability and professional indemnity insurance. It is recommended that you take out your own personal accident insurance. Check out Snowcard for personal accident and cancelation insurance for climbing, scrambling and mountainwalking. I recomend a minimum policy of Sport Climber as this covers scrambling ground which you may venture onto even on a navigation course.
