Elements Guiding

For summer 2021 and into autumn I'll be based here in Scotland and not out in the Alps. 

Elements Guiding can help you with any mountain and safety related requests that you have. Whether you are looking to improve your rock climbing skills, be guided on an unforgettable climb or learn more self-reliance in the mountains we can help you achieve these goals.

The climbing so far this summer has been excellent. If you have a desire to improve your own climbing and safety or just to enjoy some classic routes then drop Elements an email. 

This summer into autumn is the perfect opportunity for mountaineering in the Skye Cuillins, climb that ridge on Ben Nevis you've always wanted to or sharpen up your rope work and skills in this terrain.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions or ambitions that Elements Guiding can help with.

What our clients think

"Chadders (Mark Chadwick) has put together amazing itineraries every year I have asked and got to climb with him. My main goal has been to summit the Eiger —with my skill set, fears and availability, saying he has been accommodating would be an understatement. He is always extremely aware and attentive of external conditions and his client’s needs and requirements. I could not have asked for a better guide nor would I want any other guide."
