My name is Anthony Eccles. I set up higherclimbing.wales in 2015 after qualifying as a Rock Climbing Instructor. I am now a qualified Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor (MCI) which is the highest qualification for teaching rock climbing and summer mountaineering in the UK. He is also a member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI) which provides extra assurance to my clients that I am current with best practice and continued professional development.
My climbing experience extends back nearly 20 years. From the Peak District Gritstone; to long Alpine granite routes; and to the sea cliffs of Snowdonia. I was also a Mountain Rescue volunteer for 2 years and I have extensive experience in the mountains of Snowdonia where I run most of my courses and events. In addition to my professional mountaineering qualifications, I take an active role as a volunteer for the British Mountaineering Council. Even when I'm not working in the mountains, I'm usually still out there climbing, Scrambling, running or walking.
