I'm proud to be a #GetOutside champion for Ordnance Survey, and a Hill Walking Ambassador for the British Mountaineering Council!

So far I've spoken at Keswick Mountain Festival, run a bunch of workshops and skills sessions, trotted up Snowdon with co-OS Champ Jason Rawles, trotted up Catbells (Lake District) with the BMC and the inspirational Meek Family, scrambled up Tryfan (Snowdonia) with the BMC under the excellent tutelage of Rachael Crewesmith, and done a spot of orienteering. Next up, a 24hr mountain race. eek.
