I spent two days in May scrambling with Mark as preparation for a climbing trip to the Alps. Mark's professionalism was obvious from the start and inspired confidence. I had a fantastic two days and would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and SMG.

I had the pleasure of being one of Mark’s students about three years ago for climbing courses in Europe and South America. His style of instruction and mentoring still resonates with me to this day. In fact, I have found myself using his methodology throughout my time working as a climbing instructor on a professional and personal basis. Over the years I have worked with other professionals in the industry and would not hesitate to put Mark up against the very best!
