Store: MILTON KEYNES TREK
Richard is a highly experienced winter walker. He has spent winters becoming intimately acquainted with the peaks of Lake District and Snowdonia, facing every condition imaginable, so is a great port of call for advice on routes when the cold weather takes hold. Richard has spent time working in our Capel Curig store, using every opportunity to explore the surrounding Welsh mountains.
Despite his masses of experience in the UK's mountains, Richard has never summitted Ben Nevis and is hoping to rectify this and conquer Britain's highest peak very soon.
Helvellyn, Lake District. "It has the most variable and fickle weather, and that's how I like it - never boring! Crisp days up there are the best and the technical descents are amazing."

Resident climbing expert Kenny began climbing with an after school over five years ago, and has since gone on to climb all over the UK, from Ratho in Edinburgh to much of the Peaks. Despite preferring the technical challenges of bouldering, he can lead climb both outdoors and in and is trained to CWA qualification level.
Kenny understands the importance of good climbing equipment more than most after taking a hit while lead climbing. "It made me appreciate the quality of equipment I was using", he says. This year he will be completing his CWA assessment.

"I would like to express my gratitude for the exceptional service, guidance and advice I received today while visiting the shop to find a suitable pair of climbing shoes. I was attended to by Ryan who patiently guided me through the specifications and sizes of each model of shoe in stock and gave me the benefit of his fantastic technical knowledge, experience and preferences. He even let me try on his own personal rock shoes. He did this while directing staff to other customers and managing other activity in the store, the whole time making everything relaxed and unhurried.
"I was very pleased to be invited to try the models we had favoured on the bouldering wall, thus completing a flawless experience of a perfect sales consultancy."
"I would certainly return to your store to purchase other items. The service was over and above any other winter sports shop I have visited. I will definitely recommend Ellis Brigham Milton Keynes to my friends, family and work colleagues."
"I thought it’s only right that I email you to point out a situation when everything was perfect... I'll be coming back to your stores each time I need something. Although the internet may be cheaper in some cases, you can’t put a price on great customer service."
"I Drove an hour to this store in Milton Keynes as nobody closer stocks Arc'teryx gear. They had a limited stock but were more than happy to get samples in for me. The great service - knowledgeable, un-rushed and unbiased - from Nick meant I spent 2 hours racking up a £1200 spend which I was happy to do the way I was supported with decision making. It's a long time since I got this kind of service in a retail outlet. Quality of service is always down to the individual & Nick deserves the recognition for getting it right. Thank you."
