del davis, wild walesDel Davies
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 centre – for more details EMAIL HERE

del davis, wild walesJen Towill
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.
