Climber, Mountaineer & Expedition Leader.
Having started out as a climbing instructor in the UK Tim spread his wings to include working abroad. After 7 years working at an Outdoor Centre he then spent over 10 years as a full time climber and mountaineer and if he wasn’t cragging, guiding and instructing in England in summer, or climbing and mountaineering in Scotland in winter, then he was guiding in the Himalayas or in Greenland.
He has over 15 years’ experience in Nepal and has summitted Lobuche East (5 times), Island Peak (8 times), Mera Peak (twice) and has recently added Ama Dablam to his list of ‘ticks’ with November 2017 being the 16th trip there. During 6 expeditions to Greenland Tim added over 50 unclimbed peaks to his CV as well as summiting Cho Oyu in 2006.
As a qualified Mountain Instructor, with a background in logistics and with a whole host of expeditions under his belt it means that you are in safe hands with Tim.
Tim was part of the Karrimor 2005 Everest expedition and successfully summitted from the North side on the 30th May. In 2011 Tim led an expedition on the South Col route of Everest, topping out with 4 clients, to become only the 10th Brit to have summited Everest from both sides.
In 2013 Tim returned to Everest and summited again with another 4 clients – this time making a double summit in one season.
After 2 seasons with no one summiting Tim made his 5th ascent of Everest in 2016 and followed with his 6th ascent in 2017 when he was part of the first tranche of people to summit on the first window.
