Gritstone Adventures Instructor Staff:

Our Instructors are obsessed with outdoor activities. Our Instructors are highly qualified Mountain Leaders or Mountaineering instructors who have been walking, climbing and mountaineering with passion for their whole lives. They are drawn from all over the hill and mountain areas of the UK and have an intimate knowledge of the UK’s wild and beautiful places.

Our instructors have worked with the full range of clients, from young kids who are being introduced to the outdoors for the first time, to running progressive and advanced technical mountaineering courses to adults.

Our instructors are selected for their positive attitude to life and their love of sharing their experience with others. Our instructors are personable, friendly and fun – and when the chips are down, they are the ones eating the chips! Our instructors are sensitive to people’s needs and understand that they may be working with people who are well out of their comfort zone. Our instructors will never put pressure on a client – only encouragement.

Our instructors are the best in the business.
