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!

Climb The Eiger – Training & Ascent GuidingHelen Harris, Climbed the Matterhorn with us in 2017 and Eiger in 2018
‘I have climbed the Eiger’! I still cant believe it!
I decided to attempt the Eiger after successfully climbing the Matterhorn with ‘High Mountain Guides’ last summer and being very happy with the service provided.
I have to say that Rob at ‘High Mountain Guides’ and Mike (my excellent guide) both did everything in their power to help me achieve my goal. When the weather and booked out huts threatened to put a spanner in the works, together these guys hatched a plan and with a few changes everything came together nicely.
I highly recommend High Mountain Guides. They will do their utmost to make your dreams come true!’

Chamonix Alpine Mountaineering School GroupChris Wright, Giggleswick School, 3rd Visit In July 2018
This was my forth trip with Rob and third time taking a group of school pupils with HMG. Each time, we tweek and improve the schedule and this year was no exception. With Rob’s eye for detail and thorough planning, the 12 pupils aged 14-18 all had a truly amazing experience including the Aiguille Tour,; harder routes on the Tete Blanche; Marbree ridge; Entreves traverse ; topping off the trip in the Cosmique Hut and routes on the Pt Lachenal; Cosmique Arete & Arete Laurence. A smashing 9 days with some great rock climbing at Les Contamines. I thoroughly recommend Rob for planning and guiding your adventure, whether it’s a gnarly North face or gentle glacier traverse. The guides that he employs are all first class professional mountaineers who interact well on a personal level too.
Snowdonia Rock Climbing Guided WeekendPeter Little & David Edwards, July 2018
Steve was great; knew what he was doing, was patient and supportive, and great company. All in all it was a truly memorable couple of days. As ever, the professionalism of you and your company make you my only choice when it comes to guiding. I’ve recommended you to other friends who have also used you/your guides and say the same thing.
Thanks again for a great experience and look forward to having another adventure with you again soon.
