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.

Perfectly paced and tailored, great variety of skills learned. Guiding and Instruction? Thomas was fab! Everything was pitched at the right level (no pun intended), safety was always paramount and everyone had so much fun learning everything. Clare · Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)
