When Dave is not guiding you in the mountains, you’ll find him cycling, paddling, skiing, climbing, snowshoeing and listening to music… loudly!

It was great taking part in a bespoke, prototype expedition on an empty mountain in a beautiful part of the world. It’s a challenge; it’s remote; you carry your own kit. Stunning scenery too! Highlights for me were exploring a new mountainous region, surrounded by serenity from start to finish. The cultural mix of ethnicities, religions and languages was apparent throughout and very enriching. The assembled support team, climbing sherpas and local teams were excellent, and there were excellent chefs, meals with plenty of fruit and veg.
