Rob's first job was with the British Antarctic Survey as a mountaineer

as a Mountain Guide in 1976 he worked for eleven years at centres in North
Wales. Since then, as a freelance, he has led parties trekking, climbing
and skiing all over the world. He takes a special interest in natural
history and is closely connected with the Wilderness Trust and the John
Muir Trust. For more details about Robs ski touring and mountain guiding.
Del was a geography teacher who, after eleven years at the chalk face,
moved into outdoor pursuits and became warden of The Towers, the Wolverhampton
LEA Centre near Capel Curig. An accomplished rock climber, he came late
to fell-running, but became Welsh champion in the veterans class and held
the record for the traverse of the Cullin Ridge on Skye. For the last
few years he has travelled through mountains in a more leisurely manner,
working as a consultant in outdoor education and instructing Mountain
Leader training and assessment courses. He also runs an excellent bunkhouse

Jen is a keen rock climber and loves being outdoors. In her words “the beauty is being in the middle of nowhere with no-one else around and just being able to enjoy the environment you're in”. Climbing and walking in the hills allow Jen to do this, and puts her in some amazing situations, that’s why she loves the mountains so much. Jen has been instructing groups for 3 years now, and is currently helping to promote walking in the North Wales region. Jen aims to divide her time between environmental and outdoor work.
