Who We Are
LOCRYN WILLIAMS, BSC (HONS), PGCE, MCCT
Rock Climbing instructor (RCIA), Mountain Leader (ML), Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT), PE Teacher
I am a Rock Climbing Instructor (RCIA) and Mountain Leader (SML) with a passion for all things outdoors. Mountains to me are an opportunity to learn, to be curious, and to have an adventure that you will always remember.
Being a PE teacher, I have long advocated for an education system that takes the values of the outdoors and instils them within their own curriculum. Offering opportunities to all young people. But also adults, members of the public who want to try something new.
I started off as a rugby player before concussion retired me at 20 years old. I needed a lifeline and that was the outdoors. I am a massive advocate for mental wellbeing and I understand from personal experience how rewarding, challenging and emancipating being in the outdoors can be.
Every day is a school day, especially when every day is in the mountains or cliffs.
I gained my RCI in 2020, and recently qualified with my ML in summer 2022 after spending a year in the mountains both in the UK and abroad during holidays. I aim to work towards my MCI, whilst also making some amazing memories with clients and friends, passing on skills to help people enjoy themselves and be safe in the outdoors.
Navy AET, Trainee RCI
Andy has been my climbing partner, mountain partner, fitness partner, rugby partner since we were kids. Over time, he has developed the safety knowledge, environmental knowledge to begin to look towards taking groups out himself.
At times he will be assisting with Mountain Days and Rock Climbing days to develop his knowledge and share his unique sense of the world!
Navy AET, Rock Climbing enthusiast, mountain enthusiast, beginning journey to SML and other Military AT
Dan joined us a couple years ago with the first meeting being on a beach, around a BBQ. From there, his first multi pitch was a grade 1/2 winter climb in Scotland where he learnt how to snow climb. From there we have climbed in many different countries, including scrambling to the top of Petite Fourche in the Alps this summer. Steadily building up to harder routes and he is now going forwards with his military AT to gain qualifications in the field.
