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.
Stuart McAleese Senior Guide IFMGA Mountain Guide
Originally from Cumbria, Stuart now lives in Llanberis, North Wales. Previously he worked at Plas y Brenin as a senior instructor working on MIA and MIC training and assessment courses and is now one of our core team of guides.
The course content was brilliant. No knocking whatsoever. We had Jacky for the duration, and his experience shines through and his leadership. He taught me a lot of things, not just the black and white of things but actually quick methods to overcome tricky situations! Andy Challenor · Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)
