Snowdonia Matterhorn Training WeekendHoward Mayo, Matterhorn Training Course, October 2018
Thank you for organising the Snowdonia Matterhorn training weekend. I had a fantastic time with my climbing partner, Debbie and our guide Ric Potter. Even the weather was great. Our guide, Ric had a great way of explaining everything, clear and easy to understand. He inspired confidence in our equipment, our ability and our trust in him. He really showed us everything we needed to know, watched and corrected where necessary and praised where it was due.
I would certainly recommend Ric to anyone thinking of going on this course. Once again, thanks to yourself and Ric for a fantastic weekend and looking forward to the Scotland Matterhorn training weekend.
Matterhorn Training Course North WalesGeorge Lisher, Llanberis Matterhorn Training Weekend
I had an excellent weekend. Rock climbing in big boots was new for me. It was good to learn some new techniques such as moving together. The weekend was great for my motivation. Before I started my drive home on Monday morning I even made a quick ascent of Snowdon!
I was very impressed with Callum. He is clearly an excellent rock climber. He was very enthusiastic and wanted to share his knowledge, experience and advice throughout the course. I look forward to visiting the Alps next Summer to climb the Matterhorn….Regards George

Great time, Thanks for the follow up. Guides were great (knowledgeable, vigilant) all the things I like which was appreciated. Kind Regards, Blake
Feedback on the course, I found it a great experience. The guides were excellent, very knowledgeable , friendly and patient. It was also good the way Guy gave us some tips on scrambling technique (ie face out as much as you can) – you don’t always get this on mountaineering courses as often the instructors are too busy just getting everyone up the route.

Climb Gran Paradiso CourseMarta Skrzypiec, Gran Paradiso Ascent, Sept 2018
What a brilliant experience I had climbing Gran Paradiso with an excellent guide Andy Nelson and 4 other amazing and passionate alpinists. The trip turned out to be a great psychological and physical challenge, fantastic opportunity to meet like minded people, to socialize and get more ideas about future climbing opportunities. The whole course was organized fantastically, very professional service from the moment I arrived in Chamonix. I am looking forward to more trips with High Mountain Guides and highly recommend the company to anyone interested in climbing and/or mountaineering adventures
Chamonix Intro To Alpine Mountaineering Course
I just wanted to say thanks for organising the alpine intro course.
It all went well.
It was a lot of fun and educationally very helpful, The crag climbing day was very good, particularly practising prusiks and rescue set ups close to the crag.
Thanks again. Ben Jeffcote

Ascent Of The Matterhorn Hörnli RidgeRichard Flint, Matterhorn Training Programme & Ascent, Sept 2018
Hi Rob, Forty eight hours on its finally sunk in and I must say what a superb job you did psychologically and physically getting me to the top. Your very nuanced preparation about what to expect where and when both beforehand at a large scale and on the mountain itself yard by yard made a massive difference to me. You somehow managed to get a naturally cautious person who was feeling genuinely apprehensive to keep moving steadily up and down, particularly in the down stage when the adrenaline had run out along with my energy. Your technical skill (even to the inexperienced) is obvious but your blend of attention to safety and your willingness to explain what’s happening and what needs to be done and to involve me in the decision making, even under pressured circumstances, was exceptional. So chapeau to you!!

Matterhorn Preparation WeekAndrew Wills & Steven Seaton, Dufourspitze / Weissmies / Chamonix Mountaineering Week August 2018
We had a very active and enjoyable week and felt very lucky to have landed Robin as our guide (not sure he felt the same about us!) Although we obviously didn’t get a crack at Dufour we had plenty of variety – all of which we were very happy with. Our time on rock highlighted just how weak I am in my upper body and will look at improving on that between now and our next trip!! We very much enjoyed Robin who obviously has a lot of experience and knows his ‘stuff’. We would be very happy to be guided by him again. The only minor disappointment was the lack of our promised ‘rest day’ although no doubt Robin will say we weren’t deserving of one!!

Another plus was sharing an evening meal with Christophe Profit at the Gniffeti hut. You don’t get to do that everyday!
