We’re very happy to welcome Tim for his first full season with Skye Guides. As modest as the rest Tim is another ‘proper climber’ who has gained his paper qualifications easily on the back of his personal experience. His Cuillin knowledge is already extensive and his guiding skills well above average on his shadowing days with Mike.
Tim graduated in geology and earth science from Glasgow University last year but always knew that being an instructor is what he really wanted to do.
He has already enjoyed traveling on expeditions to obscure parts of the world to climb big peaks in Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan and Nepal.
Tim currently holds the MCI qualification. In future he plans to join the International Guides scheme.
Winter – ascent of The Needle on The Shelterstone (big day out) or an incredible moonlit night ascent of Curved Ridge on The Buachaille.
Summer – Cragging with a big group of mates at Elgol. 6 ascents of Mother Pride that day!
Alps – An ascent of The Walker Spur on The Grandes Jorassess (amazing/freezing Bivi sunset).
Mick Fowler – for his love of adventurous routes in the mountains.
Book – currently reading The Great Game which is an amazing insight into a forgotten part of the world. Many Michael Morpurgo books when I was younger.
Music – Love most things from Scottish trad to Pink Floyd, Chic to 90’s house.
