For many years he has spent the summer season in the Alps followed by another summer based in Australia, where he is renowned locally for pioneering climbs in some of that country's wildest places - climbs such as the incredible 'Totem Pole' sea stack in Tasmania. Notable Alpine achievements include early ascents of the Supercouloir on Mt Blanc du Tacul and 'Gulliver's Travels' on the Grand Capucin, as well as a solo ascent of the Eiger North face. He still climbs to an extremely high standard on both rock and ice - when climbing with him you can't fail to learn a lot and his boundless enthusiasm is sure to rub off!

Just a quick word of thanks for the course last week. Our guide Tom was excellent and covered a lot of miles to ensure we got the best conditions and great routes in and was always ready with a word or two of advice when needed - please pass my thanks on to him, James (2017) · Technical Alpine Rock
