Simon works full time in the outdoors running his own mountaineering business, based in North Wales but operating around the UK. MountainXperience guides hundreds of people safely to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) each year and teaches others how to stay safe in the hills and mountains on various outdoor training courses. His personal mountaineering career has seen him climb mountains on four continents, but he mostly loves exploring what we have here in the UK. Even after years spent in the outdoors, there are still British adventures he’s keen to tackle. Simon particularly enjoys working with those new to the outdoors and is passionate about passing on outdoor skills to others. He’s a provider and course director for ­Mountain Training and delivers their Hill and Mountain Skills courses in Eryri (­Snowdonia) and the Peak District. He also loves teaching map reading and compass skills as a provider and course tutor for the National Navigation Award Scheme.
