Jungfrau & Monch Ascents, June 2019James Sides, Bernese Oberland Private Guiding & Training programme.
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 Mountaineering & Allalinhorn AscentEdward and Steve, Singapore, Chamonix private guiding, June 2019
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!

Mont Blanc Summit & Training 2019Tony & Maya, Mont Blanc training in Scottish Highlands & Successful Summit Climb, Feb, March & June 2019
Mont Blanc Training In The Scottish Highlands…Thank You Rob, we had a great time, minus the weather of course and lack of snow, but that is outside your and ours control of course. Both Tamsin and Graeme were very good and we have nothing but good things to say about them.
Mont Blanc Summit Climb….Thank you everything was great!

Chamonix Intro Alpine Mountaineering CoursePaul Smith, Maria Saligova & Sarah Alajaji, Mountaineering Training & Gran Paradiso, June 2019
Maria and I had a fantastic time on the alpine intro course last week. We learnt so much and it really gave us a new interest and passion for the high mountains. Dylan was terrific all week and is a lovely guy who inspires a lot of confidence in his teaching. The whole experience has however now left me with a new found desire to conquer a 4000m peak. The sunset from the Chabod hut was beautiful and a real privilege to witness. Paul & Maria
I really enjoyed and learned A LOT from the course. Dylan was very knowledgable and helpful. Sarah
