With over 20 years experience of working in outdoor education centres, including 'White Hall' Derbyshire LEA in the mid to late 1980's - see 'climbing lessons' by Pete McDonald for some back ground on this period at the centre. After this foundation I moved to 'Arthog', which is Telford and Wrekins LEA centre in Gwynedd, for a varied and different relationship for the last 16 years.
More recently I worked for the Joint Services Mountaineering Training centre Indifatagable on Anglsey delivering mountaineering (Summer ML)and rock climbing training (SPA) and assessment courses.
Ian has introduced may people to the sport of rock climbing.
