Thanks for the flexibility on today. As you prompted, and my phone forecast indicated, it was not a good day for being in the mountains. Pete

Hi Rob, Sorry for the late reply – we had a great time and Dylan was brilliant. Thanks for being so responsive while we were planning. It already seems like a long time ago – I wish the after effects of mountaineering lasted longer to offset being at work!
Gran Paradiso Attempt July 2019Francis Nation-Dixon, 2 Day Gran Paradiso Climb
Hi Rob – Thanks, I’m afraid we didn’t do as well as we should have and both struggled with the altitude. Although we put in a lot of training walks and felt fresh after walking up to Plan from the village there is a great difference between starting at 1000 m and 2800 m after a bad night! Ric was really professional and coaxed us up the mountain well and he was also incredibly modest about his achievements – including bivvying on la Meije….
You run a very efficient operation and a pity we didn’t make it but ….
Best wishes, Francis

Mont Blanc Guiding With Gran Paradiso Training ClimbCarl Williams, Gran Paradiso & Mont Blanc Ascents, June 2019
Thanks Rob for a very well organised week. Climbing the Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc has been an unforgettable experience and I’ve come away with a true sense of the meaning of Alpinism. The guides were fantastic, very knowledgeable, great company and I always felt safety was paramount.
Best Wishes, Carl.
Chamonix Granite Mountaineering Week, June 2019Joe Grainger, 5 good routes in 5 days, Perrons, Tour Ronde, Dent du Geant, Papillons & Peigne!
Many thanks for organising and looking after me last week – i had a fantastic time. Despite the temps i feel like Gav managed to choose some great routes and i feel like i achieved a lot. Yet again, his guiding was exceptional.
Just now need to gather my thoughts on appropriate objectives for next year! Many thanks again. Joe

Just wanted to say a big thank you for getting Matt to guide us this week! We had a blast of a time, perhaps even better than if we’d pushed for Mont Blanc. Matt was very accommodating to our fluid schedule and a very good judge of our abilities too. We learnt a lot of new skills and definitely enjoyed our time this week.
Ending it with the Allalinhorn summit via the Hohlaubgrat route could not have been a better choice! Thanks again to you and Matt. Happy climbing! I would second everything that Ed said. In fact, I’m not sure how the week could have been better! On top of this, Matt is an excellent photographer!
