ALPINE & expedition Tuition


Each year I run a series of Alpine Training Courses at different levels, which are designed to introduce people to the alpine world and to build upon the skills of those with existing experience. The courses are conducted in the Snowy Mountains of NSW.


The Essential Alpine Skills course is designed for those who wish to learn how to safely enjoy the mountain environment without the need for technical mountaineering skills.

The Introduction to Mountaineering course is for those with some existing outdoor skills who wish to engage in general mountain climbing or for those who have specific mountaineering goals, such as an ascent of Kilimanjaro, Mera Peak or Island Peak.

The Advanced Mountaineering and Ice Climbing Course is for those with existing rope handling and basic rock or alpine skills, wanting to take it to the next level of technical climbing.

Private Consulting and Tuition. Tailor made instruction and mentoring for yourself and/or your team, specific to your dates and goals.
