The Outdoor Bloke
Outdoor Adventure Services
I am available to hire on a day-by-day basis. For individuals or small groups. I predominately work with adults (over 18 years) these days.
Whether you are an individual looking for some adventure and some organic health guidance or a small group looking to be guided into the mountains for some wild action, then I’m your man!
I am also actively seeking out collaboration with like minded professionals in which our skill sets complement each other.
Mountain Leader (ML) – Guiding, navigating, summitting, providing safety cover and expertise in the British mountains. My strong holds are The Peak District, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Snowdonia, but am am able to adapt to different environments under the snowline - no hard winter conditions.
Bushcraft and survival – Fire lighting using various methods, including fire by friction, bivvying/ camping, foraging, tree and plant ID/uses, whittling & tool safety, water purification, natural navigation, camp fire cooking etc.
Rock Climbing Instructor (SPA) – Climbing, scrambling and weaselling on single pitch crags and/or indoors.
Outdoor Remote First aid – I am first aid qualified in far from help/ remote environments.
Expedition Leader – I've led 25 personal and professional overseas expeditions in to remote regions all over the world.
Wim Hof method enthusiast – Breathwork and cold-water therapy
Meditation and mindfulness – In wild and remote regions
Trail running – I have run trail marathons and ultra-marathon (up to 70 miles).
Wild Coaching Session
Half or full day of coaching on the mountain side or in the forests. Summitting a mountain, journeying the fells or setting up camp in a forest. This sets the scene to review your current health and put together a key action plan of how to start to achieve your key aims. Ideal for the individual.
Mountain lake cold dip
I’ll navigate you deep into the mountains or wild moorlands and to a remote mountain lake or stream. I’ll facilitate a breathing session followed by a cold-water dip. I will then navigate you back. All whilst providing safety cover and enhancing your experience. This can be a solo adventure or for a small group (up to 8 people).
Trail running adventure
I’ll put on my running shoes and work with you to plan a 16-22mile running adventure. I’ll predominately navigate, but will teach you some key skills along the way. We will take in local attractions, go off trail at points, search for caves, crags, viewpoints and different nooks and crannies. This is ideal for 1-3 people who are runners with a base level fitness but looking to get into trail running. It will be a run/walk adventure and will likely take 6-7 hours.
Let's get wild together
The three services above are some of what I have done recently. However, I am open to ideas and adhoc adventures - providing that they are within my scope of practice and my knowledge/ skill base.
Please get in contact with ideas and for pricing.
