Climbing and Mountaineering Expert Dave is a great person to know if you’re curious about ascending Scotland’s rugged peaks. Dave has been climbing since his teens, was the president of his University’s mountaineering club, and with over a decade of climbing experience under his belt, (4 years of which he has spent as an instructor), Dave’s climbing knowledge is irrefutably vast.
In Glencoe he climbed his first multi pitch route with his brother. All over Scotland from NE sea cliffs, NW sandstone and locally Cairngorm granite. he climbs year round and lives under the Cairngorms famous for great winter climbing and all that comes with it.
He has taught all over Scotland, both indoor and trad, is SPA trained, and is a specialist when it comes to the real details such as tensile strengths, fall factors and rope dynamics.
Dave is hoping to scale Mont Blanc within the next couple of years, drawn to Continental Europe’s highest mountain by the prestige and its rich history.
Braerich, Cairngorms. "This mountain is virtually as big as Ben Nevis (it’s the third highest in the UK after Ben Nevis and Ben Macdui), but it’s really remote. A great climb."
