After cutting his teeth on early rock climbing and mountaineering trips to Europe and the Yosemite Valley in California. Stuart then went on to explore adventurous and unclimbed routes around the world. In 2003 he was nominated for the prestigious Piolet d’Or Award for his new route in Alaska, he then went on to climb a new route on a huge 1,400m wall over 21 days on Baffin Island and then earlier in 2013 climbed Cerro Torre in Patagonia. We welcome Stuart to the ISM team.

Summiting Mont Blanc was an important milestone for me which I am grateful to all at ISM. Particularly Terry, who is the ultimate professional never compromising on safety. Max is a pure gem with wonderful guidance and outstanding people skills in abundance.Altogether a brilliant week! David (2017) · Mont Blanc (Custom Course)
