An advantage of operating for over 30 years in the outdoors is that we have built a portfolio of over 40 highly experienced freelance staff, many of whom work solely for us.

Dave worked at the Bristol Climbing Wall for many years, where he was a climbing instructor working mainly with youth groups.

After qualifying as a Summer Mountain Leader he decided to leave UCR and become more involved in working in his favourite environment - the hills and mountains of the UK. This gave him the opportunity to become more involved with his passion, which is "To develop a love and respect for the outdoors in our youth groups"
