After many years in a full time job in engineering, Mark now spends most of his spare time in the mountains. Over the past 35 years he has been very active in canoeing, caving, sailing and skiing though more recently concentrating his efforts in mountaineering.
He regularly experiences most UK mountain areas, undertakes numerous alpine trips and more recently, has gained experience of the Himalaya. Wanting to share this experience and knowledge has led him towards the Summer and Winter ML and RCI. He now works alongside local schools, trains and assesses on Mountain Leader courses and leads month-long, overseas school expeditions.
