A climber and paddler, Olly has been expeditioning for over 28 years, be it in the mountains or on the sea. He was nominated in 2004 for the Piolet D’Or for a first ascent in Alaska. A Level 5 Sea Coach and MIC, he runs his own coaching company after working full time at outdoor centre Plas-y-Brenin for ten years. Recently Olly has been combining sea kayaking and climbing to do first ascents in Greenland. He is always up for a trip as long as there’s a decent supply of coffee and no more polar bear encounters!
He has also produced three instructional DVDs for sea kayaking:
- Sea kayak Safety
- Rough Water Handling
- Expedition Skills
