Over the years I've compiled a mass of notes and tips from my experiences and those of other instructors and climbers and it seems a waste to leave them tucked away in notebooks and the back of my mind.  So I'm going to be putting them into some semblance of order and structure and put them here.  Please remember that climbing and mountaineering is inherently dangerous and if you undertake these activities you do so knowing full well the potential risks.  Likewise should you decide to use any of the information on this site then you do so at your own risk.  Knowledge is information, Wisdom is being able to use that information appropriately.  I can provide you with knowledge but it takes time and experience to gain the wisdom.
