HUGH THORNBERY CBE
My climbing experience, indoors and outdoors, spans several decades. I am a qualified mountain leader and rock climbing instructor with experience coaching both adults and children of all ages, as well as family groups and children's parties. I have given many people (both the confident and the nervous!) their first experience of climbing, as well as coached more experienced climbers to excel. I tailor my coaching precisely to the needs of my client, in every sense, and have experience and understanding of working with physical disabilities, neuro-diversity and mental health issues.
I have climbed throughout the UK and Europe, Arctic Norway, the US and Himalaya. I'm just as much at home at the local climbing wall or bouldering gym.
I have had a long professional career working with children and families and as a leader at all levels, in a wide range of different settings.
