Climb GB is run by Tom Hopper:
“I am a keen hill walker, mountaineer and climber. I’m extremely active in all three of these sports and have accumulated a wealth of experience stretching back to my first notable adventure in to the mountains in 1992 (Austrian Alps).
In pursuit of these activities I have travelled throughout Britain, as well as further a field in places such as the Alps, the Andes, South-East Asia, North and East Africa.
I currently hold the Summer Mountain Leader Award (MLS), the Winter Mountain Leader Award (MLW), the Single Pitch Award (SPA) and the Climbing Wall Leading Award (CWLA). I am also a degree graduate, with a BSc (Hons) in Geography & Sport.
As an instructor my primary role is to give people an enjoyable and safe time; ultimately aiming to provide a fantastic sense of adventure whilst climbing or in the mountains and also help people to learn a great deal in the process.
I have been instructing for over a decade now and still enjoy every moment. My work is diverse and extremely rewarding with my customers and clients always unfailingly inspiring, interesting and enjoyable to be around."
Tom also runs Pinpoint Adventure. In addition to rock climbing and hill walking, Pinpoint Adventure also offers snowshoeing, DofE, underground adventures, forest schools, bushcraft, curriculum enrichment and MiDAS.
