UPDATE July 2015: Ken and Hannah are now running Scottish walking, mountaineering and climbing courses for West Coast Mountain Guides.
Running Apple Mountaineering up until now has been good fun, and an interesting learning curve, and it will be a bit of a shame to sideline it, however, an opportunity was presented to Hannah and myself recently, which was far too inviting to refuse.
So, as of this moment on, Hannah and I will be heading up the Scottish Courses for West Coast Mountain Guides. For those of you who have spent time mountaineering and climbing up in the Scottish Highlands, you may well have come across Alan Kimber, who set up West Coast Mountain Guides, based out of Fort William, over 25 years ago. Then, back in April 2013, IFMGA Guide and MIC, Bruce Poll took West Coast Mountain Guides over, and it will be alongside him that we will be working, allowing Bruce to focus on Alpine Ski Touring, Cascade Climbing and Summer Alpinism, whilst we head up the Scottish Winter and Skye Courses, again, based out of our home town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.
There are exciting times ahead for us, with lots of work to do, but ultimately, a fantastic opportunity that we’re both looking forward to diving into.
Here’s a post on West Coast Mountain Guides’ blog explaining a bit more about us coming onboard: http://www.westcoast-mountainguides.co.uk/news/ken-hannah-to-head-up-scottish-courses/
If you do follow this blog, then thank you, but we will be posting on West Coast’s blog, which you should definitely follow, in the future and can be found here: http://www.westcoast-mountainguides.co.uk/category/news/
We will leave this website running for the time being, but not updating or editing it.
