MIA Trainee offering free climbing tuition - Devon based

 I am currently working towards my MIA assessment (I have already completed the training course) as part of my consolidation and preparation for assessment I need to take people out climbing and scrambling.

So what am i offering:
A free day out of quality instruction, which can be looking at basic single pitch climbing, learning to lead, Intro to multi pitch, Sea cliff climbing, Self rescues skills, guided routes, Even Hill walking and navigation skills if you feel that would of use to you. Depending on where you are I might be able to help with transport to venues. I will also be looking to get up to North Wales a fair bit, so there is possibility of arranging a trip up there with some free instruction.

As an MIA trainee I do not, as yet, hold the Mountain Instructor Award which is the recognised qualification for the instruction of scrambling and multi-pitch rock climbing in the UK. I've undergone the training course, but training for an award does not constitute a qualification. The term aspirant should not be used as a level of competency for multi-pitch climbing has not been assessed.
am confident I can offer a high level of development and tuition as I have worked in the mountain environment for a number of years but the high quality of an MIA that already holds the award should be considered when replying as this will very much be a learning experience for myself too

So if you have made it through reading all that and are interested in some free tuition or have any questions please either reply to me here by pm or email direct on

RE: MIA Trainee offering free climbing tuition - Devon based

 Hi there Rhys,

I would be interested in a day's guiding & tuition in multi-pitch climbing or sea cliff climbing when you are next up in North Wales.

A little about my background, I climbed for 2 years then had a break for about 2 years before getting back into climbing last November. I have sport climbed in Calpe & Siurana in Spain and the Todra Gorge, Morocco; and climbed trad at the Roaches, on Limestone & Slate around North Wales, and climbed multi-pitch routes in the Lakes. In addition I did my first winter climbing season this year involving easy gully climbs of grades I & II in the Cairngorms and snow/ice skills, dry tooling and multi-pitch climbing up Beinn Eighe in boots & with packs in NW Scotland.

Although I have done a fair amount of climbing the majority has always been as a second and I am keen to get more trad leading done, as well as improving my efficiency of placing gear and setting up belays/anchors. And i've never been sea cliff climbing before so definietly up for having a go and learning the ropes.

Hope to hear from you soon.
