The company and courses are run by Silvia Fitzpatrick. Silvia is a very experienced climber who holds the Mountain Instructor Award and is a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors and the Mountain Leaders Training Association.
Silvia has been climbing all over the world over for 20 years and has built up an extensive and impressive mountaineering CV; highlights include climbing the North Face of the Eiger, making the first female ascent of Cerro Fitzroy in Patagonia, becoming British Climbing Champion and becoming one of the few female climbers to climb a route with the magic 8b grade.
Silvia was a Sports and Modern Languages teacher before training and qualifying to become a climbing instructor and she uses this teaching experience to help people learn new mountain skills whether they are just starting to climb and scramble or whether they want to gain specific rock climbing skills at an advanced level.
