Hi, I am Joe Begley and the enjoyment of the outdoors has taken me all over the world, throughout the seasons, to walk, scramble and climb. I am passionate about getting people out there. I love introducing people of all ages and abilities to the mountains. I provide scrambling, climbing, navigation guiding and instruction in North Wales. I also provide guided walks in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales and the Isle of Anglesey. My professional memberships include: Mountain Training Association (MTA), The British Mountaineering Association (BMC), the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI) and The Climbers' Club of Great Britain (CC). I hold the following qualifications, Mountain Leader (ML Summer), Mountain Leader (ML Winter), Mountain Instructor (MIA). In addition, I hold a current Rescue Emergency Care (REC) First Aid Certificate. I am an accredited course provider of the National Navigation Award Schemes (NNAS), Bronze and Silver Awards and the MTA Hill and Mountain skills awards.
