UK Mountain Leaders (Guides)

Ben Nevis can be tricky to navigate

Hiring a Mountain Leader is a great idea for your 3 Peaks Challenge or other Mountain Adventure and we can help to arrange this for you.

If you’re relatively new or inexperienced in Mountain hiking please consider booking a Mountain Leader or Guide. It is imperative that you can navigate proficiently especially in poor weather conditions.

Ben Nevis, for example, is the highest mountain in Great Britain and if you’ve never climbed it before you should be aware that it can be very tricky to navigate and should never be underestimated.  The top third is snow covered for most of the year and the tracks are very narrow in places and extremely difficult to determine in the snow. This coupled with treacherous cornices make Ben Nevis a very dangerous prospect for the inexperienced climber.

Scafell Pike and Snowdon can be equally treacherous, especially in bad weather, with hundreds of people taking wrong turns each year putting themselves and others in danger. The Mountain Rescue Teams are extremely active on these 3 mountains, receiving hundreds of calls each year from walkers and climbers finding themselves in difficulty.

The solution is to hire a qualified UK Mountain Leader to assist you with navigation and saftey. We can help to arrange this for you – see our bookings page to make an enquiry.

Please make safety your top priority and don’t take any chances.
